NTSB to investigate cruise ship fire

By Michael Bolden

The National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the fire that occurred in the engine room of the Carnival Splendor, federal officials said Thursday.

The fire broke out on Monday while the ship was cruising in the Pacific Ocean. The ship, which was left without power, was pulled into port in San Diego Thursday morning by tugboats. The Navy delivered food and other supplies to the 3,299 passengers and 1,167 crewmembers, while the ship was stranded.

NTSB investigator Larry Bowling will be in charge of the probe, the board said.
