 AIDA Prima, a new ship for Carnival Corp.'s AIDA Cruises brand, was damaged by a fire early Sunday at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. (MHVYF)’s shipyard in Nagasaki, the Japan Times reports

 
The fire reportedly was quickly extinguished by workers, with no injuries. Citing police and firefighters, local media said a worker found cardboard and insulation materials burning.
 
The fire, which is the third to strike at the shipyard in January, is reportedly being investigated as an arson. 
 
It follows an electrical fire near a theater space on January 11, and a fire in a cabin involving a piece of cloth that took place January 13.
 
AIDA Prima is set to be the new flagship for AIDA Cruises. Its most recent launch date was April of this year.
