The fire that killed two people and injured dozens aboard a North Sea passenger ferry apparently was deliberately set, Danish police said. The 600-foot Tor Scandinavia was en route from Goteborg, Sweden, to Harwich, England, with 650 passengers and crew when fire broke out Monday. It was extinguished in a few hours, and the ferry sailed to its home port in Esbjerg, Denmark.

The Estonia sank in 1994, killing more than 900 people, when heavy seas ripped off its visor-style bow door during a trip to Stockholm from Tallinn, Estonia. A preliminary report issued in 1995 said the bow door's locks failed.
