Not by the fire. IIRC, there was one passenger who panicked and had a heart attack upon seeing the fire, but the fire did not actually cause it.

Well, in so far as most of us would be quite bored if forced to hang out in our assigned muster stations for several hours while the ship's fire parties extinquish a fire like that one.

That fire, fortunately, did not pose a danger to any of the ship's muster stations, so the passengers were fairly comfortable. Nonetheless, one cannot discount the danger posed by a fire that engulfs a ship. There is simply nowhere to escape, except in the ship's lifeboats.
