At 7:10 the same day, fishing boat BTh 97409 TS, captained by Pham Thuong, a native in Long Hai commune, Phu Quy district, Binh Thuan province, was on fire due to a short circuit. The boat was about 1.2 nautical miles southeast of a DK1 platform. All six fishermen on board the troubled boat jumped into the sea.

Ship KN 261 gave first aid to the fishermen and joined hands with the two remaining ships to put out the blaze.

All fishermen are now recovering.
