Default Fire at NYC Cruise Terminal?

My mom told me that she saw on the news that within the past few days, there was a fire at the cruise terminal in NYC, and the Norwegian Dawn and Spirit had to evacuate. I can't find a link to a news story right now, as I'm rushing out to get to class, but when I get back I'll try to find one.

"BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO" All staff and guests either evacuate the building or run onto the ship. 4 minutes later, both ships pull off from the dock.

I do remember hearing about the rouge wave that caused damage and injuries. I don't remember hearing anything about a fire, or it tipping 30 degrees, but maybe it did and I missed it on the news. The Crown Princess tipped over like 20-30 degrees 3 years ago.

And this past May, NCL's Spirit was pulling into its berth in New York, two berths down from the Dawn, and it hit the pier it was docking next to (the one that I was docked at on the Carnival Miracle). It caused damage to the end of the pier, and our cruise director made it sound like we may have had to go debark elsewhere (I was thinking we were going to go to Brooklyn).
