A fire broke out on board Oasis of the Seas, the first in a series of
two 225,000 gross ton cruise liners Royal Caribbean International (RCI)
has on order at Aker Yards Finland.

Some 1,500 workers that were on board the ship at the time the fire started at about midday on Thursday were evacuated. Insulation material on deck 9 caught fire in
connection with welding work and the yard's own fire fighters were able to put it out before it could cause extensive damage, the Kauppalehti business daily reports on its website.

Although the were no casualties, the fire caused a lot of smoke, which spread from
deck 9 to various decks higher up on the ship, the report said.

According to sources including a Royal Caribbean spokesman, the fire was "a
non-event and, will not impact production or on-time delivery of Oasis of the Seas."
