Fire injures crew member on Freedom of the Seas cruise ship

As the Freedom of the Seas cruise liner was approaching one of its destination ports in Jamaica on Wednesday morning, a fire was reported to have broken out in the mechanical section of the ship. Though no passengers are reported to have been injured, one crew member sustained first-degree burns during the incident.

Once the fire was discovered, the fire was contained and extinguished with the fire suppression system on board the vessel. In what is being termed as “an abundance of caution,” the captain ordered the ship’s passengers to their designated emergency stations soon after the fire was discovered.

When the Freedom of the Seas returns to port in the United States, the U.S. Coast Guard will inspect the cruise liner. The ship is owned and operated out of Miami by Royal Caribbean International.
