Carnival knew about the risk of leaks on ill-fated ship

Carnival Cruise Lines knew about the risk of leaks from engine fuel hoses and recommended taking precautions on the ill-fated Carnival Triumph that later caught on fire at sea, according to court documents the company has filed. A leak from a hose on Engine No. 6 of the ship led to a fire early Feb. 10 as the ship returned from a stop in Cozumel, Mexico.
