  • Crew remained inside Russian nuclear submarine as firemen battled to put out massive blaze... but are they still trapped?

    A massive fire aboard a Russian nuclear submarine at an Arctic shipyard has finally been extinguished.

    Several crew members remained inside the Yekaterinburg sub as the blaze raged overnight at a repair dock in Roslyakovo shipyard in the Murmansk region.

    Defence Ministry spokesman Colonel Igor Konashenkov insisted there was never any danger of the fire spreading inside the sub and said the crew reported that conditions on board remained normal.

    It remains unclear whether they were trapped by the flames or ordered to remain behind.
