Not sure if it was exactly the same boat, but on the same route I took to get to Langkawi from Satun in Thailand caught fire. Fortunately no-one was injured in the fire.
In Fridayâ€™s 3.45pm incident, 67 passengers, including eight crew members, had a narrow escape when the ferry caught fire in the middle of the sea.
The ferry, en route to Langkawi from Satun, Thailand, was carrying 59 passengers, including tourists from Britain, Denmark, Switzerland, Canada and Thailand. – Bernama
