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.

Norm.
I would think that any fire on a ship would be poseing a danger to everyone and everything on board
