    Bonhomme Richard On Fire - Navy Ship Fire San Diego News, Updates

    They're still investigating the cause of the fire.

    It appears the ship may not be able to return to service.

    I saw it reported on FOX news. I figured it was probably fake. :shrug:

    Looks like they have now found a fatal flaw in that class of ship.
    fire has always been the most feared disaster on a ship.

    This could be a real disaster.

    59 injured in fire aboard ship at Naval Base San Diego

    Millions of gallons of oil could spill into San Diego harbor.

    That would include aviation spirit, which is even harder to lift. and might well catch fire.
    it is probably what is burning now.

    China has just announced that they are building another of that class of assault vessel.
    Perhaps they will make theirs a bit more fireproof and battle worthy.

    Or perhaps they will build "two for the price of one" and offer one to the US Navy to see if they burn.
