Watch: Fire burns a Carnival cruise ship while passengers are docked in Grand Turk

Passengers on a Carnival cruise were treated to a sideshow this morning when their ship caught fire. Spectators caught spectacular footage (three videos below) of the cruise ship blasting orange flames and black smoke into the sky while it was docked in Grand Turk after leaving Port Canaveral on Monday. The fire burned inside the ship's funnel, according to a Carnival Freedom statement, and was quickly put out. Fortunately nobody was injured.
