According to Indonesian media reports, twenty one workers were evacuated from the FSO, but the unlucky man was left trapped in the engine room.

Reportedly, the fire broke out as a consequence of an electric fault in the engine room, spreading to the bridge of the vessel. The vessel was moored near Kota Baru, Kalimantan, Indonesia at the time of the incident.

TribunKalteng.com writes that the scorched body of Purwo Hadi Wibowo, the chief engineer stuck in the engine room when the fire broke out, was recovered Wednesday morning, September 17, 2014.

The 230.88 meters long vessel built in 1975 is owned by the Indonesian oil company Pertamina. According to JPNN, police have launched an investigation into the cause of the incident.
