latest report admits this was started by a welder's torch.
This is pretty common in a shipyard, doing welding in very confined spaces.
However, in the west, at least, the shipyard has a well trained fire fighting organization for just such events.

The Russians have never been great about fire prevention/control.

On September 27, 1941, Nelson was hit by an Italian torpedo during an air attack forcing it to return to Britain for repairs.

Yes! I'd buy her a drink and not even care if she threw it back in my face.

 :2funny:

That "elite company" comment is kind of funny. I mean, come on. The J-15 isn't that great an air superiority fighter, right? And China has bubkus when it comes to carrier operations experience. It's certainly eyebrow-raising, but...
