A small fire broke out aboard a Navy guided missile cruiser Saturday docked in Virginia, injuring five civilian workers, officials said. The workers were taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. The extent of their injuries was not immediately known. The USS Leyte Gulf was undergoing repairs and renovations when the fire started Saturday morning, Norfolk Fire and Rescue Battalion Chief Bruce Evans said. The blaze was put out by a portable extinguisher about 15 minutes after it began. The cause of the fire was not immediately known, though Evans said it appeared to be an industrial accident.
