Ferry on fire, no good...

Norman Atlantic ferry fire: Passengers cry out for help as burning Greece-Italy car ferry is evacuated in high wind and rough seas - Europe - World - The Independent

Sounds really, really bad, lets hope it turns out better than it sounds for the moment....
On another site mentioned "Our shoes were melting while we were in the reception area" .

Looks like the whole inside of hull is more or less in fire now, hope they can speed up the evacuation, not sure it will make it to port...
