The fire alarm came around 12:38 a.m. local time, when the ship was north of Gotland.
Swedish media report that the fire broke out in a freezer container of a truck on the vehicle deck. Smoke was observed but no open flame.
There are currently no reports of the victims of the fire, and it is likely that there will be no need for the evacuation of passengers.
