FBI asks for photos and videos of Conception disaster

The FBI on Tuesday asked the public for video or photos of the September 2nd fire aboard the Conception. The FBI has set up a webpage, www.fbi.gov/boatfire, for the submission of images and said witnesses could call the agency at an 800-number with tips.

Agents from the FBI, ATP, the USCG and local sheriff’s deputies have served search warrants at the offices of Truth Aquatics and on two other ships belonging to the company. One of the other ships, the Vision, closely resembles the Conception.

Crew members have told investigators they did not hear smoke alarms before waking up to discover flames erupting from below decks, according to National Transportation Safety Board member Jennifer Homendy.
