Freedom of the Seas

Update, 3:30 p.m. EDT: Freedom of the Seas will continue with its scheduled itinerary with no delays.

(1:40 p.m. EDT) -- All passengers and crew onboard Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas are safe and accounted for after a small fire broke out in a mechanical area of the cruise ship. Passengers were mustered but have since been released. One crew member was treated for first-degree burns.

The fire broke out around 9:15 this morning as the ship was pulling into Falmouth, Jamaica. The ship's fire suppression system was immediately activated, containing and extinguishing the fire.

All passengers were mustered in what the line called "an abundance of caution." The only reported injury is a minor burn to one crew member.

Cruise Critic member Leslie401972 is onboard the ship and reports that passengers have been released from muster, and @MssJayne tweeted passengers may disembark for their shore excursions.  There is no word yet on if the ship's departure will be delayed.

Freedom of the Seas is docked in Falmouth and all systems are functioning.

The ship is in the midst of a seven-night sailing that departed Cape Canaveral on Sunday.
