It's now being reported that the fire is contained and extinguished and all systems are working. It's reported that the fire started in a 'mechanical space" and no injuries were reported. Passengers were told to report to their muster stations but have since been released.
Glad to hear this. The Freedom is one of my favorite ships.

It is being reported that a crew member suffered first degree burns.

Such a scary scenario, for all onboard. Can you imagine the people waiting at the port, seeing the ship get closer with black smoke plumes shooting out? Wow!

Saw some video of it on F.B.--one of my favorite ships and we're supposed to be cruising again on the Freedom in the fall. Hopefully it's back in service by then.
Hopefully no one was injured and if anyone was, we certainly hope whatever injury they suffered was minor.

Thanks for the update. Hope the crew member recovers quickly and that there are no other injuries.
