FIRE ABOARD THE SHRIMP BOAT KEMO SABAY SENDS CREWMAN TO HOSPITAL WITH BURNS


The shrimp fishing vessel KEMO SABAY caught fire and burned on Thursday when a propane tank was tipped over and ignited. Three crewmen were rescued by nearby vessels. One of three crewmen aboard the vessel was seriously burned and was medivaced to Harborview Hospital for treatment. The KEMO SABAY is home ported in Port Townsend.

The maritime injury lawyers at Stacey & Jacobsen, PLLC recently settled another case for a crewman injured in a Washington fishing vessel fire and explosion for 4 million dollars. Fire and explosion cases involve complex factual and legal issues. Vessel owners frequently attempt to limit the crewman's right to compensatory damages in cases such as this by employing an ancient law called the Limitation of Liability Act.
