YOKOSUKA NAVAL BASE, Japan — Thirteen sailors received minor injuries in a small fire aboard the USS Antietam on Thursday, 7th Fleet officials told Stars and Stripes.

The sailors were hurt while responding to the blaze in an engineering space. They returned to duty after being treated by the guided-missile cruiser’s medical team, 7th Fleet spokeswoman Cmdr. Reann Mommsen said in an email Monday night.
