Admiral Kuznetsov on fire!

Recommended Posts

It would seem there looks to be a major fire on the Admiral Kuznetsov in Murmansk.

 

As a former shipyard worker fire on board was something we did nt want to contemplate. I hope all the guys are safe.

Likewise, let’s hope everyone gets off safely although report of between one and three men missing doesn’t inspire hope.

" Briefly on fire at the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier.
 

 1. The fire was put out today.  Now they pump water from the compartment where the fire occurred.  In total, the fire lasted about a day.
 2. According to preliminary data, the cause of the fire was a violation of safety during welding - sparks from welding entered the compartment with fuel oil (according to other information, rags soaked in fuel oil that were not removed from the compartment), which led to a fire.
 3. During extinguishing a fire, an officer of the ship's survivability service was killed.  Poisoned by carbon monoxide.  Another victim was discovered this afternoon (before that he was considered missing).  Another 14 people were injured (mainly poisoning by combustion products, although there are injuries), one of them is in serious condition.
 4. The amount of damage caused to the ship will be determined by the state commission.  After a while, they should declare how great damage to the ship is and how it will affect plans for its repair and modernization.
 5. A criminal case has been instituted on the fact of the incident regarding a safety violation."
