USS Miami Fire

Postby Tom Dougherty » Thu May 24, 2012 11:42 am

USS Miami had a serious fire while at Portsmouth NSY in Kittery, ME. Sounds like the potential for a lot of damage, as it burned for quite a period:

Some injuries but no deaths, thankfully.

UPDATE
Here's more information, with some video footage:
