Just heard it on the news down here, quoted as saying 'it's going to burn for a while', it'll be a toughy being alongside with everything opened up for the dockyard mateys to do their thing, I think they said there had been some injuries both ship's company and docky's.
We had the LOX plant let go on the Big E, blew a hole in the dental surgery deck and I seem to remember it took a life, we were lucky being at sea and normal sea going DC state but lower deck was cleared with ship's company to the flight deck and everything shut down in double quick time - us hangar rats closed up and stood to as a precaution.
