Recommended Posts

HII’s Ingalls Shipbuilding and the Navy are investigating the cause of a fire on the future USS Bougainville (LHA-8), the shipyard said Friday.

The America-class big-deck amphibious ship, which is under construction at Ingalls in Pascagoula, Miss., experienced a fire that “was localized to a small number of compartments,” a shipyard spokesperson told USNI News.

“During second shift on Thursday evening, Ingalls fire and safety personnel responded to a call from Bougainville (LHA 😎 for a fire in the superstructure,” Kimberly Aguillard said in a statement.
