This morning while waiting for the bank to open, someone ran from the parking lot next to the bank and said: “the ship is on fire!” When we ran over, we saw the Freedom of the Seas on fire. The fire was on the uppermost deck.
The fire was blazing, but the ship was still making its backward trek into Falmouth Pier One. We could see liquid being shot towards the roof to sool it down. Many passengers were on deck and we could hear instructions being given over the PA system.
Their internal fire fighting worked and the fire was brought under control on board. by the time it docked in Falmouth, we only saw smoke, and the volume quickly reduced as the minutes passed.
We have not yet received information as to what caused the fire so we will just post what we have seen. Here are more pictures of the Freedom of the Seas fire in Falmouth harbour that took place this morning:
