A fire broke out on a Danube River cruise ship today. Around 190 passengers and crew members were evacuated, including eight people who were treated for smoke inhalation.
The fire reportedly broke out in the sauna area of the A-Rosa Riva cruise ship when the ship was west of Vienna, Austria, according to an Austrian newspaper.
150 passengers and 39 crew members were reportedly transferred to another river ship that dropped anchor nearby on the Danube.
Helicopters reportedly flew the two most seriously injured crew members to hospitals. All of the injured are crew members who tried to extinguish the fire.
The vessel is registered in Germany and is operated by the A-Rosa Cruises company.
