Doesn't sound like the firefighters had air packs or other hazmat gear. It's interesting that the particular photo on the russian website is actually a US DOD photo - here is the caption on the US government website for that pic:

ID: DNSC9600521 Service Depicted: Other Service
An aerial stern-on view of the Russian Northern Fleet AKULA class nuclear-powered attack submarine underway on the surface.

I guess we have better photos of their subs than they do :D

"In January 1999, its captain, Sergey Spravtsev, was crowned the Hero of Russia for courage and heroism.
According to media, K-317 followed a strategic missile carrying submarine of the United States for 150 hours in a row."


How about this last statement of the article?
I'll bet that the US Navy will asume its responsability to deny vigorously that THIS didn't, wouldn't and will never EVER happen!! :)
