(MIAMI) — Company documents show that Carnival Cruise Lines knew about a generator fire hazard aboard Carnival Triumph more than a year before fire disabled the ship last February, CNN reported.

It drifted for four days without air conditioning and largely without lights, water, food and working toilets before it could be towed to Mobile, Ala.
