US Sub fleet Dangerously Not Safe and Unfit For Combat.
The shipyards cut corners to save pennies and make profits. They used unfit hull foam and cabling that was easily ignitable.
The scenarios is something caused the sound deadening inside foam to catch fire...it quickly uncontrollable created a sub fire conflagration...
They spray on all over the inside pressure hull many inches of foam for thermal and sound deadening reasons.
“It’s like going into a chimney,” said Portsmouth Naval Shipyard firefighter David Funk, who described insulation and wiring fueling a smoky fire that became hot enough for aluminum to burst into flames.
Whitehouse said when he first arrived at the Miami, there was some light smoke coming out of the submarine and the ship's crew had been dealing with the fire. He said his firefighters located the fire in the front of the sub and on the middle deck of the submarine's three decks, but it quickly spread to the upper deck. At one point, flames were shooting out of the forward hatch.
Was the ships fire hose water system functional?
Light smoke, then bam a conflagation with fire coming out the the hatch.
How long was the light smoke going on?
