Information provided by Meyer Werft, the builders of the 'Norwegian Getaway' is as follows:

A fire leading to significant smoke formation broke out on a ship newbuilding in the covered building dock II. At present the shipyard’s fire brigade and members of the Papenburg fire department are still in operation on the yard premises.

The affected production areas and the shipyard’s visitors centre were evacuated.

As of now there are no detailed indications as the reason for the fire. “In general we install large-size safety and detection systems on our ships as early as [sic] in the construction period. Hence we could react very quickly,” explained the yard’s safety manager, Markus Wähler. As it stands at present nobody was injured. In the current situation nothing can be said in regard to material damage. Completion of the newbuilding in 2014 is not at risk according to information currently available."
