An account is given of a fire which occurred in fish meal carried by M.V. "Mocamedes". From observations made at the incident it is concluded that the probable cause of the fire was spontaneous heating of the fish meal. The conclusion conforms with the known behaviour of freshly prepared fish meal, and it is suggested that the meal was stowed too soon after preparation.
