“It was the worst watch for a warship”: USS Bonhomme Richard fire damage shown

The U.S. Navy presents updated data related to the fire aboard the USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD-6) universal landing ship. According to new information, 57 people received poisoning from combustion products and burns, including both military sailors and civilian personnel, including firefighters.


Rear Admiral of the U.S. Navy Richard Sobek, turning to reporters, said that open burning on board the UDC lasted at least 27 hours. The main task that was set before the fire brigades was to prevent the spread of fire in the fuel compartments, as well as on the infrastructure of the San Diego military base and other ships. Allegedly, firefighters coped with this task.

Rear Admiral Sobek:

It was the worst watch for a warship. The fire spread to the captain’s bridge, the skin was partially melted. Collapsed structures on the upper deck. Burned out indoor. There, the temperature reached 1000 degrees. Our firefighters took all measures to cope with the frantic spread of fire.



An important statement from representatives of the Navy base in San Diego is that at the time of the fire, no welding was carried out on the ship, although a few hours after the fire started, it was the “spark from welding” that was called the cause of the Bonhomme Richard fire. Also an important statement concerns automatic fire extinguishing systems. It is alleged that most of them were disabled for some reason. They were probably turned off during the repair and maintenance of the UDC.

From the press conference of Rear Admiral Sobek:

Due to the fact that the ship is undergoing maintenance, debris and dismantled fragments of the structure are scattered along its passages, which complicates the safe fight against fire.

At the moment, fire aviation continues to "spill" the ship with water. At the same time, the ship continues to smoke.

The frames of one of the San Diego canals show the fire fighting process and the damage that the U.S. Navy ship received:

        Yes, extinguishing aluminum-magnesium superstructures and bulkheads on a ship with outboard water is a classic of the genre.
        It was necessary to foam, but the fire system was turned off.
        IMHO - kayuk to the ship, and all the worries - so as not to explode and the base did not blow ...

          I suspect that they won’t even cut metal (they don’t know what happened after the fire), but they will bring them to the depth of tugboats and flood them.
          ... the fire went well through the cables.

            Come on! "Brothers" Americans do not send their vessels to scrap or to be "drowned" so quickly! wink Suffice it to recall the biography of the aircraft carrier Forrestal (entered into the Navy in 1955) and its fire (according to an unofficial version, thanks to Joe Biden lol ) in 1967, which claimed the lives of 135 crew members, counting the wounded .... And nothing was restored ... and for more than 20 years he was part of the fleet! Withdrawn from the fleet in 1993 ..., after which it was in reserve for another 20 years and only in 2015 sawn into brooms ...

              thanks to joe biden

              Not Biden, but the late Senator McCain (R - AZ). Biden turned away, making a certificate that he had a "history of asthma." As for McCain, having a dad-admiral, commander of the Navy in Vietnam, he could easily get a position that provides fast and safe career growth, but he preferred to go to carrier-based aviation, and not to Phantom, but to Skyhawk, which were shot down much more often ... Another thing is that he messed up there so that anyone else would have long been transferred to head the fuel and lubricants warehouse somewhere in [s] Chukotka [s] Alaska, and the admiral's son got away like water off a duck's back. And in politics he messed up so that ... But since about the dead it is either good or nothing, I will just add that he is deceased, and this is good.

                As for McCain, having a dad admiral, the commander of the Navy in Vietnam, he could well get a position that ensures fast and safe career growth, but chose to go to carrier-based aircraft, not Phantom, but Skyhawk, which they shot down more often . Another thing is that he messed up there so that any other would have long been transferred to manage the fuel and lubricants warehouse, where is the thread in [s] Chukotka [s] Alaska, and everything went off to the son of the admiral like a goose

                McCain was the injured party in that fire: the ill-fated rocket was launched from the Phantom opposite to the one and hit the Skyhawk next to McCain's car, breaking through the PTB. The future senator was forced to do acrobatics, getting out of the cockpit and crawling along the nose cone in order to get out of the fire zone.
                The main culprits of that disaster are gunsmiths. They, in violation of the instructions, connected the NAR launchers to the onboard network before switching to onboard power and the aircraft entering the catapult - they say, it's faster. Well, they were added: the instruction was written for a reason - when the aircraft switched to on-board power, pulses first began to "walk" in the onboard network, one of which led to an unauthorized launch. They would connect on a catapult - there would be no more impulses. Moreover, if a catapult was launched, the NAR would have gone over a clean deck into the sea. And in the parking lot, the Phantom slammed a rocket right into the Skyhawk that was standing opposite.
                The second puncture of the gunsmiths was the safety checks of fuses with ribbons, which were often pulled out again before being placed on the catapult.
                Well, the third, the most epic one, is the acceptance on board AB and the suspension for vehicles ready to take off with bombs with "old-style" explosives, and even those that have lain for 20 years in the tropics, sometimes under the open sky. The "new model" explosive was kept on fire for 10 minutes. BB of the "old model" did not have such a delay. As a result, the regular fire brigades of AB, counting on new bombs, were almost completely destroyed by an explosion that occurred much earlier than those same 10 minutes. Then the fire was extinguished by amateurs. And it was as a result of this fire that the fleet decided that each member of the crew should be trained to fight fire.
                It is noteworthy that the chief of the coastal warehouse from which the bombs were taken, having learned that the bombs would go to the AB, delayed the loading and the ship leaving them at sea until a written order was sent to ship these rusty bombs to the AB.

                    And what to blame him for? It is impossible to launch an NAR from an aircraft standing on the deck if the instructions are properly followed by the deck crew. Even if it was a launch from McCain's car, he could not have done anything without "help" from the gunsmiths. Physically, I could not - when the gunsmiths were working, according to the instructions, before being placed on the catapult, the outboard weapons had to be de-energized, and the cables to it had to be connected only on the catapult. And it was not the pilot who connected them.
                    And the rusty bombs from the "old-style" explosives were not accepted by McCain and hung up. smile

      Well, it was not possible to drown, but in repair it will stand for a long time. Although according to the results of the inspection and fault detection, a decision will probably be made on the inappropriateness of the repair and it will go on needles.

        The ship in the base for maintenance. The team is mostly on the shore. Dozens, if not hundreds of workers, scurry about in the crowd. Some have already brought nitro-paint for painting, others are in a hurry to cut off old pipes and weld new ones. The simultaneous presence in the premises of stripped old paint, rubbish, other easily combustible materials and electric or gas welding always lead to predictable results.

            To get bullied - you need a combat schedule. He was absent. Then part of the compartments cannot be battened down - a temporary highway, for example, has been laid somewhere. Somewhere work is going on in bulkheads and they cannot be closed without preparation, well, etc.

            There were about 160 people of the team and their main task was not the BZZH, but to pull all the counterattacks and workers from the ship. No casualties. So they worked on it. And then they gave the command to bring down the team - there were 10-20 officers left there to help and coordinate firefighters + a shortened emergency party (but it was not stupid completely). At night (on their day), parties were formed from neighboring Berks and thrown into the fire. For example, DDG-73 Decatur sends his batch to the ship.

                Well, it's in the woods. Plus a fire number or emergency batch provided work. Therefore, everything is fine. The cost of 50% of devastating fires is usually in the region of 1 manual fire extinguisher within walking distance from the outbreak, and the remaining 50% is a fire extinguisher + person in walking distance from the outbreak.

                    Coincidence and flame spread. On Kuz they could localize. At Wosp failed. It is not clear how it all began. If they learned about the fire when it broke out, then there is nothing surprising.

                    If caught in Wosp - localized, then there would also be nothing. If it hadn’t been caught at Kuz, it would have been like at Wosp. Here, it was rather lucky, unlucky + detection time + decisions made and available forces.

                    But the ship is likely to be written off. He warmed from bow cargo decks and engine room to the island and the captain’s bridge. At the same time, even 1000+ degrees are written in the news - materials scientists will be cut off, because capital constructions are already all.

                    Steel because we have Kuznetsov.
                    And this American is aluminum.

                    Parties are organized, people go to the ranks ..

                    And what else can people who do not really know how another ship is arranged? Walk in formation.
                    If their destroyer was sent to extinguish, they would know what and how. IMHO.

                  About a fire extinguisher and a person, everything is correct. The house at the dacha was 15-20 seconds from the loss, ran in time from the bathhouse (the light went out, shorty), and on the second floor it was already blazing. The flame is growing before our eyes! He grabbed the burning rubbish, threw it in several passes (from the loggia pulled anywhere), a bucket of water plopped there (there is always water below). Then it’s easier :)))) But the clothes burned, the crosses melted, his hands burned. But the hero :) From the speed of spread of the flame was in surprise. Then he sat for a day there at the spilled, the house is wooden, he was guarding.

        The tightness of the bulkhead does not affect the spread of fire throughout the ship’s premises .... Class A-60, A-30, A-15 bulkheads can slow down somewhat ... But this is the dimensions, weight and of course the price ...

      Base systems usually shut off such work. But they are carried out (well, of course, normal) in compliance with fire safety standards, wearable means. That is, the logic is this - while cooking / cutting structures / smoke will be a lot of workings. Nobody needs it. But emergency calculation / fire number, will be able to extinguish the outbreak in case there is a visible threat of fire. Total no false positives, frustrated work and their schedule.

    An important statement from representatives of the Navy base in San Diego is that at the time of the fire, no welding was carried out on the ship, although a few hours after the fire started, it was the “spark from welding” that was called the cause of the Bonhomme Richard fire.

    Have a smoke! It happens to everyone.
    Also an important statement concerns automatic fire extinguishing systems. It is alleged that most of them were disabled for some reason. They were probably turned off during the repair and maintenance of the UDC.

    It worked often, that's it!

    The ship in the base for maintenance. The team is mostly on the shore. Dozens, if not hundreds of workers, scurry about in the crowd. Some have already brought nitro-paint for painting, others are in a hurry to cut off old pipes and weld new ones. The simultaneous presence in the premises of stripped old paint, rubbish, other easily combustible materials and electric or gas welding always lead to predictable results.

    during repair, a watch officer is appointed from the crew (even in the civilian fleet), or several. depending on the size and scope of work or by institution. Which look after hard workers and ongoing work! especially for welding !!! How do I know? - 7 repairs per month for a minimum of REGISTER class, with four abroad! And ... yes .. there were all but time to warn and localize a couple of times on the spot, on our own for ... because even in the mess of the 90s - the beginning of the zero managed to serve!

    Firstly, there is no need to gloat. They, although a potential enemy, but still the same sailors, like us.
    Secondly, there is nothing unusual in fires during repairs. Yes, full-time (automatic) fire extinguishing systems can be turned off. very often explosive and fire hazardous work is underway. It happens that the welders are long gone, and the temperature at the place of welding is still high. And here, according to the law of maximum dirty tricks, some oiled rags fall into this place. Notice right away, so catch the fire.
