LPG tanker fire, explosion VIDEO

LPG tanker GRACE V under repairs at Samarinda PT Barokah Perkasa shipyard, East Kalimantan, Indonesia, reportedly caught fire, followed by explosion, on Feb 11. According to video, though, it doesn’t look like GRACE V is the ship which suffered fire and explosion, small tanker or bunker tanker berthed next to GRACE V stern is more likely victim. No casualties, no injures reported. GRACE V is docked at Samarinda since Mar 2020.
