Fire broke out early Monday morning on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship that sailed from Baltimore on Friday. All 2,224 passengers and 796 crew have been accounted for, and no injuries have been reported, the company said in a statement.
The fire started at 2:50 a.m. in the mooring area of deck 3 of Grandeur of the Seas. The passengers and crew were called to assembly stations as a precaution before the fire was extinguished, according to the Royal Caribbean web site.

It is sailing in calm seas with full power, the company said.
