Details of the Incident
A fire broke out on the starboard side of Deck 7 while the ship was stationed at Roatan Island. Prompt response from the ship’s crew ensured that the fire was extinguished in a short span of time. Subsequent to the incident, the affected area on Deck 7 was blocked off to facilitate maintenance and to ensure safety.
