Arson suspected in third small fire aboard AIDAprima in a month

Japanese media are reporting arson is suspected in a fire that broke out early Sunday aboard AIDAprima at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries' Nagasaki shipyard.

The fire reportedly was quickly extinguished by workers, with no injuries.

Citing police and firefighters, the Japan Times said a worker found cardboard and insulation materials burning.

The Japan Times reported it was the third fire in January, following one in a cabin on Jan. 13 involving a piece of cloth and one on Jan. 11 in electrical wiring near a theater.
