The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - UK & World Update -

FIRE­FIGHT­ERS have ex­tin­guished a mas­sive fire aboard a docked Rus­sian nu­clear sub­ma­rine as some crew mem­bers re­main in­side, of­fi­cials say. There was no ra­di­a­tion leak and the ves­sel’s nu­clear-tipped mis­siles were not on board, they said. Mil­i­tary pros­e­cu­tors are in­ves­ti­gat­ing whether safety reg­u­la­tions were breached. Pres­i­dent Dmitry Medvedev sum­moned top Cabi­net of­fi­cials to re­port and de­manded pun­ish­ment for any­one found re­spon­si­ble.
