MOSCOW (AP) — Fire broke out on a Russian nuclear submarine undergoing repairs, but no injuries or radiation leaks have been reported.
Russian news reports said the Monday fire on the Tomsk submarine at repair yards in the Pacific Coast city of Bolshoi Kamen was extinguished with foam.
The Tomsk, capable of firing cruise missiles, has been undergoing repairs since 2010. Reports said all its weaponry had been removed and that the reactor was shut down, although it was not clear if all nuclear material remained in the reactor.
The Tomsk is of the same class as the nuclear submarine Kursk, which sank in 2001 in the Barents Sea after an explosion, killing all 118 people aboard.
