Fire Aboard Ship Returning to Seattle
There was a small fire in the engine room of the Norwegian Star cruise ship as it returned to Seattle from an Alaska cruise, KXLY reported.
Canada's Transportation Safety Board is investigating the Norwegian Star at Prince Rupert, British Columbia, to determine what happened.
Steve Church of the Rescue Coordination Center in Victoria says the fire was small enough to be put out by hand, and the ship's fire-suppression system was not used. The fire apparently was caused by a leaky fuel valve.
