Seven passengers from an Italian ferry that caught ablaze off the Greek coast are airlifted to a Greek hospital.

Health officials say those seven victims, all men, are suffering from respiratory problems due to smoke inhalation.

Authorities say at least seven people died in the at-sea inferno, that started in the vessel's lower deck.

Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras offers his condolences.

(SOUNDBITE) (Greek) GREEK PRIME MINISTER, ANTONIS SAMARAS, SAYING:

"Yesterday's tragedy which unfortunately had victims, has caused great anguish to everyone. I express my condolences, and my support to every family that suffered."

While the car ferry has since been fully evacuated, it still smolders at sea.

The cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
