A cruise ship with about 1,000 people on board was
drifting in waters south of the Philippines on Saturday after a fire
disabled its engines, the Philippine coast guard said. Five crew members
were injured. The fire started late Friday, a day after the ship left
Manila for Sandakan, Malaysia, and was immediately put out. The ship was
carrying 590 passengers and 411 crew members, he said.The ship's
operator, Azamara Club Cruises, said in a statement that no passengers
were injured in the fire, which was in one of the ship's engine rooms
and was immediately extinguished.However,
passengers were called to muster as a precaution.
But five crew members suffered smoke inhalation, including one who was
seriously injured and needed hospital care. The cruise company's
statement said the ship was running on emergency power in "calm seas"
near Indonesia's Borneo Island. Engineers have restored power to one of
the ship's engines to re-establish air conditioning, running water,
plumbing, refrigeration and food preparation, the company said.
Engineers have been able to restore propulsion power following an engine
room fire Friday night that was quickly put out, and the ship is en
route to Sandakan (Sabah), Malaysia. Sandakan is on the northern tip of
Borneo, the island split between Malaysia and Indonesia.
