    Two people have died after a Norwegian cruise ship caught fire on Thursday. The blaze started in the engine room of the 400-foot-long Nordlys, forcing the liner to stop and evacuate all 262 people on board—more than 100 had to leave on lifeboats before reaching the dock. Several crew members were also hospitalized. The ship, which stopped just north of Bergen, was travelling on a popular tourist route at the time.
