  • NY/NJ Ferry Fire

    NEW YORK (AP) - A fire on a New Jersey ferry forced the
    evacuation of eight passengers and four crew members Monday
    morning, but there were no injuries, the Coast Guard said.
    The rescue comes less than a week after 10 people died and more
    than 60 other passengers were injured when a Staten Island ferry
    careened into a pier.
    The New Jersey passengers and crew were transferred to Fire
    Department and Coast Guard vessels after the fire broke out on the
    Sea Streak Liberty at about 9:25 a.m., according to Chief Dave
    French, a Coast Guard spokesman.
    "They're all off and the fire is out," French said.
    The ferry can carry about 300 passengers and was heading to
    Manhattan from South Amboy, N.J., when the fire erupted in the
    ferry's stacks, which are like the exhaust system for the engines.
    The Coast Guard is investigating what caused the blaze.
