The Tampa Bay Times reports a fire on USCGC Benjamin Dailey, Friday night, December 10, while in dry dock. The cutter is based in Pascagoula, MS. It reportedly took 45 minutes to bring the fire under control.

Thanks to Long Boat John for bringing this to my attention.Β

  1. Have things changed as far as watches or personnel on the ship during a yard period? While I was assigned to the Confidence during a yard period we stood security watches which included rounds throughout the ship. Granted this is a bit smaller but where were all the crew?
