From the BBC News website; yet another Indonesian ferry accident:
quote:

At least eight people, including two children, have died after fire broke out on a ferry shortly after it set sail from Indonesia's capital Jakarta.

A fire started by a truck being carried on board an Indonesian ferry has resulted in at least 16 deaths. Here's a link to the story:

To the left of the text you can click on links which take you to either a collection of photos ("slides") or video stories about the tragedy.

So far there doesn't seem to be any indication that the ferry was carrying more passengers than it should have--but it's early. It will be interesting to find out exactly how the fire started, and how it spread throughout the vessel without being contained.
