Coast Guard: Cause of cruise ship fire was a leak
MOBILE, Ala.- A leak in a fuel engine return line is to blame for a fire on the Carnival cruise ship Triumph, that's according to the Coast Guard.
The fire paralyzed the ship, leaving it adrift in the Gulf of Mexico until tugboats towed it to Mobile.
It had left Galveston, Texas on February 17 for a four-day trip to Mexico.
The investigation of the disabled ship is expected to take six months.
