HOUSTON — The Coast Guard Cutter Vigorous began escorting the Carnival Triumph cruise ship Monday night after tugs were able to begin towing it toward Mobile, Ala., which is approximately 270 miles north.

The Triumph reported a fire in the aft engine room Sunday morning, which was extinguished by the ship's fire control system. No injuries were reported.

The ship continues to operate on backup generators.

Carnival Cruise Lines has established a customer service number at 1-888-290-5095 for more information.
