Russian submarine that caught fire last week in a northern Russian dock during repairs had no nuclear fuel onboard at the time
A Russian submarine that caught fire last week in a northern Russian dock during repairs had no nuclear fuel onboard at the time, a shipyard official said Wednesday. The Akula-class nuclear submarine K-317 "Panther" was docked at the Sevmash plant in the northern Arkhangelsk Region. "Welding during repair work was the cause of the fire November 2," a spokesman said. "The submarine is commissioned with the Russian Navy, but there was no nuclear fuel onboard at that moment." He added that the plant's firefighting units quickly extinguished the blaze and that nobody was injured in the incident.
