I have recently found this video on Youtube and on the video it shows a ferry called the LAMPUNG on fire,it looks as though it is the Old Sealink ferry Dalriada built in 1971 in Norway,does anybody have any clue as to what happened to her and where the fire started and what has become of her,personally I think she is a right off.I stood by the ship in Norway as one of the engineers and have researched this ship up untill now.
Can someone provide me with any other details
Thanks

Indonesian ferry catches fire, no one injured

People's Daily 10:10 16/11/06

A shuttle ferry serving the busy Java-Sumatra route was completely on
fire Thursday morning, but all 135 passengers and crew were evacuated
safely.

All cargo and vehicles were burned out as firemen struggled to
extinguish the fire on the J.L. Lampung ferry at the Merak Port on the
western tip of Java island, reported the Detikcom news website.

"All passengers have been evacuated but vehicles were burned out," port
official Ade Syamsuri was quoted as saying.

Firemen used another ship to approach the ferry in their efforts to put
out the fire, he said.

The cause of the accident remains unknown.
