Either deliberate or to stretch the definition, accidental. I remember travelling on a European ferry a few years back. My "cabin" was below the waterline and at one point in the trip I awoke to find one of the other occupants lighting up a portable gas cooker to boil some noodles. He had a few beers on him at the time. Didn't take a genius to see where that could go....

In any case, arson is not uncommon in accommodation. Google "hotel room arson" and you'll never forget to check the location of fire exits when you travel.

Just saying.

In addition Google 'Scandinavian star' - deadly arson attack on a ferry some years back.
159 died, arson but recent theories would seem to believe they blamed the wrong guy? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MS_Scandinavian_Star
