An engine room fire left HMCS Protecteur adrift in the Pacific with no propulsion awaiting a tugboat from Hawaii. Twenty people sustained minor injuries. The 44-year-old supply ship was returning to its home port of Esquimalt, British Columbia when the blaze broke out. It had 279 crew, 17 family members and two civilian contractors aboard. Commodore Bob Auchterloinie (AWHK'-tur-loh-nee), the commander of the Canadian Pacific fleet, described the incident. (Protecteur arrived in Pearl Harbor on March 6th.)
