The fire on the American nuclear submarine arose because of the ignition of the vacuum cleaner

The fire on the American nuclear submarine (NS) Miami, which was being repaired in the dry dock of a military shipyard in Portsmouth (Maine), arose due to the ignition of a vacuum cleaner used by workers.

This was reported by the management of the shipyard after the completion of the preliminary investigation into the causes of the incident that occurred on 23 in May, ITAR-TASS reports.

"According to preliminary data, a fire broke out in a vacuum cleaner that was used to clean the premises of the submarine after each shift," the statement said.

Officially, the US Navy Commission will announce the causes of the incident in two weeks.

The fire on board the Miami lasted ten hours. Several people from the crew and fire brigade suffered, the command and residential compartments were destroyed.

Weapons, including the harpoon anti-ship missiles and Tomahawk cruise missiles, was not on board the submarine at the time of the incident. The nuclear reactor of the boat was inoperative and was not injured.

According to the Pentagon, the repair of Miami, the creation of which 22 a year ago spent about 1 billion dollars, will cost at least 400 million dollars. The command of the Navy has not yet decided whether the boat is to be restored.

        Greetings Alexey good ! This is where Russia is invincible, no vacuum cleaners — just a broom, a mop, a rag, no vibrators — only women for men and women for women, no fresheners — just a fume of good moonshine, or any fire extinguishers — just a bucket, it’s anywhere, anytime it may work, an example of a sledgehammer in the Central Command of the Strategic Missile Forces laughing

      Sasha, I don't know about you, but as a true "friend" of America, I decided to provide humanitarian assistance to the US Navy. There are two vacuum cleaners lying in the attic, I'll probably take them out through the Salvation Army and send them. yes, I’ll just ask to be sure to transmit to the submarines ... wink

          Well, irons collect dust better than vacuum cleaners .... and even through the brow the parcel will reach faster. How to collect hangs, so that everything is in one hand, and ask the peasants maybe someone has a couple of boilers lying around ... well, maybe the underwater people will indulge in a seagull when and when ...

        In your example, I also decided to send them an old vacuum cleaner. In the evening, parents should find an old Typhoon and an aluminum electric kettle without a whistle. Only probably I will ask that the aircraft carrier get anywhere, or else not all the divers will suffer. drinks laughing

            Vit, I will never forget how "boerboilers" were used in the cadet years. A piece of electrical cord with a plug, two horseshoes, are used to knock down the heels on boots so that they do not wear out (blades are possible, but works weaker) and matches with a thread. Matches are inserted between the shoes, tied with threads, wires are screwed to the shoes. and that's it !!!! A 3-liter jar boiled in a minute, although the electricity in the barracks "faded" noticeably. Bank from power already jumped on the table. Savvy!!!

                  we had a big basin for swimming - we washed it ... we then sawed up a pipe from the heating battery in the washbasin and sawed it off - from the heating system they began to drain boiling water.
                  and as for security - the daily bastard profiled ...

    Alexey, here you are writing about a can with a self-made boiler (oh, in winter, from a guard or after Paul - Tchaikovsky for three !!! good We lived in the 4th year room for the second time), and yet, in the same West Point, this is basically IMPOSSIBLE. And not because they have various vending machines there issuing again various drinks.

    The news is not bad. And then only in our eyes they see a speck. Remember how many screams were about the fire on our submarine. And that everything is asking ... whether, and only with us this is possible, and that everything has collapsed, etc., etc. But no, the nuclear submarines are also burning at the vaunted amers.
