PORTLAND, Maine — The Navy has decided to scrap the submarine USS Miami because of the high cost of repairs after a fire that damaged the vessel at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard last year.

Inspections revealed a significant number of components in the torpedo room and auxiliary machinery room would require replacement, further driving up the repair costs for the USS Miami. The Navy originally said it planned to repair the submarine but the discovery of additional damage raised the cost, originally estimated to be about $450 million.
