Fire aboard nuclear submarine at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard
May 24, 2012
In a press conference at 11:30pm Capt. Fuller of the Shipyard said:
“While the fire is not out the situation is improving. Due to the heat that was created by the fire, steam continues to emit from the ship from the fire-fighting efforts.
According to the reporter above, the submarine’s dimensions are approximately 360 feet long by 32 feet wide. The reactor appears to be located about 200 feet from the front of the vessel where the fire is said to be burning.
