This report discusses the April 8, 2008, engineroom fire on board the small passenger vessel Queen of the West. The vintage-styled paddlewheel vessel, carrying 124 overnight passengers and 53 crewmembers, was eastbound on the Columbia River near Rufus, Oregon, when the vessel's automatic fire detection system alerted the crew to the fire. The crew was able to suppress the fire using the vessel's fixed fire suppression system. The Queen of the West did not need to be emergency-evacuated. One crewmember was treated for mild hypothermia as a result of the accident. The Queen of the West sustained about $3.9 million in damage.show more
