A fire broke out aboard a Russian nuclear submarine, killing two crew members but causing no radiation threat, Russian news agencies reported Thursday.
The fire occurred on the Daniil Moskovsky submarine of the Northern Fleet, which plies Russia's northern and Arctic waters, the ITAR-Tass news agency reported. It erupted Wednesday night in a mechanics room and was put out by around midnight, Interfax reported, citing the Russian Navy's Northern Fleet.
"There is no threat of nuclear contamination," Interfax quoted an unnamed Fleet spokesman as saying.
