Headline: Boaters Advised to Avoid the WICO Dock Until Further Notice, Small Fire Reported Onboard Carnival Cruise Ship
A small fire erupted in the engine room onboard the Carnival Liberty which is currently docked at WICO, St. Thomas. The fire has been contained and no injuries have been reported.
WICO officials are asking boaters to avoid the dock until an all-clear is given.
I saw Ronnies link and they were setting up tents and apparently food as Ronnie mentioned it was gone as fast as it appeared.
Looks like passengers may have to overnight here but whether they're allowed back on boat or may need other accommodations, guess we'll have to wait and see.
What?No Lee Carle reporting the 'beautiful orange and purple flames" like the night the Angelina Lauro burned.
They will not be leaving tonight
