Default FIRE!!!

hey... i found this on msnbc's site. you can find the rest of the story at http://www.msnbc.msn.com

MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica - A fire apparently started by a cigarette raced through cabins on a cruise ship in the Caribbean early Thursday, killing an American and injuring 11 other people, officials said.

The Star Princess was en route from Grand Cayman to Jamaica when the blaze started at about 3 a.m. and spread through the cabins, according to a statement from Princess Cruises, which is owned by Miami-based Carnival Corp. About 150 cabins were damaged before crew members extinguished the flames.

Richard Liffidge, 75, of Georgia, collapsed and died on deck, said Karl Angell, communications director for the Jamaica Constabulary Force. The victim’s wife was taken to a hospital in Montego Bay.

Yeah, that's definitely really sad. That's why ships should be nonsmoking.
