Firefighters douse fire on Russian nuclear sub

Smoke rises from a dock at the Zvyozdochka shipyard in the northern city of Severodvinsk on April 7, 2015 where the Orel nuclear submarine, a cruise missile-type sub with two reactors that is classified as Oscar-II by NATO, is being repairedRussian emergency crews late Tuesday doused the fire on a nuclear submarine which had been undergoing repairs in dry dock. Firefighters had been struggling to put out the flames for several hours before finally resorting to flooding the dock and submerging the submarine. “At this moment, the fire on submarine Orel, which was under repair, has been completely put out,” said Yevgeni Gladychev, spokesman for the Zvyozdochka shipyard. The vessel — classified as Oscar-II by NATO — is a cruise missile type sub which carries nuclear material and has two reactors aboard.
