This morning I learned that a fire reportedly broke out on a Costa cruise ship in the early morning hours on December 11, 2014.
The cruise ship involved reportedly is the Costa Luminosa.
Around 5 a.m. on December 11th, while the cruise ship was sailing in the North Atlantic, diesel engine number 4 reportedly caught on fire.
The fire was confined to the engine room and was extinguished. There is no indication that any crew members were injured.
The fire reportedly occurred on the same day as the deadly engine room fire on the Oceania Insignia.
Interested in the issue whether cruise ship fires are “rare” as the cruise industry claims? Read our article: Ten Years of Cruise Ship Fires – Has the Cruise Industry Learned Anything? (Written before the Carnival Splendor and Carnival Triumph engine room fires).
