CostaFortuna Catches Fire
CostaFortuna, the under-construction, 105,000-ton ship slated for a winter 2003 launch, caught fire this week at the Fincantieri shipyard in Genoa. The fire, which lasted about 3 1/2 hours, was centered on deck eight aft, an area of passenger staterooms, and damage was pretty much limited to that area and neighboring decks seven and nine.  Fortunately, there were no injuries (aside from some who suffered from smoke inhalation) and a Costa spokesman says that the fire will not result in a delay of CostaFortuna's launch.

The cause of the fire is unknown and under investigation.
