Fire was extinguished on board a nuclear submarine of the Pacific Fleet which is based in Strelok Bay, RIA Novosti was told in the press service of the Pacific Fleet on Friday.
According to the press service's information, fire emerged on the nuclear submarine the night before because of a malfunction of an electrical heating appliance. By the information RIA Novosti obtained from informed sources, the 4th and 5th compartments were ablaze. A fire-fighting motorboat, a tugboat and two tank trucks participated in putting out the fire. It was extinguished only at day-time on Thursday.
According to the press service of the Pacific Fleet, the submarine has been phased out of the Fleet, and its nuclear arms have been dismantled. The reactor was reliably blocked.
