Fire breaks out at underconstruction Navy warship
MUMBAI: A major fire broke out at an underconstruction warship of the Navy at Mazgaon Dockyard here on Friday evening and one person was suspected to be trapped inside, a senior city fire brigade official said.
"Under-construction warship 'Visakhapatnam' caught fire at 5.44 pm. The blaze erupted on the second deck of the ship," said P S Rahangdale, the chief of city fire brigade.
城市消防队队长P S Rahangdale称：“正在建造中的‘维萨卡帕特南’级军舰于下午5时44分起火。起火点位于该军舰的二层甲板上。”
Eight fire-fighting engines, along with quick-response vehicle, have been pressed into service to extinguish the blaze, he said.
"Fire is confined to second and third deck of the warship. Fire-fighting operation is underway along with Dockyard fire-fighters. Smoke has spread in the warship. We suspect that one person is trapped inside," Rahangdale said.
"The cause of the fire will be ascertained after a proper inquiry, but the first priority is to douse the fire with a minimum loss," another fire brigade official said.
Mazgaon Dockyard is the only facility in India having capability to build sub-marines. Visakhapatnam, the largest warship of its class, was unveiled for construction in Mazgaon Docks in April 2015.
It is the first of the four stealth guided missile destroyers to be built under Project 15-B Class.

Why fire always loves Indian Navy?

Possible reasons: 1) Sabotage by supplier or parties who could monetarily profit by it 2) by foreign powers who want to delay or prevent induction of new weapons 3) poor infrastructure and training over decades while Con-gress looted the treasury

There is something fundamentally wrong with Indian workers. THEY DON''T HAVE PRIDE AND INTEREST IN THEIR WORK. They are only interested in agitating for more money and less work. It is rather sad. On the other hand Mr. Modi is pushing "Make in India". Good luck with that!

poor quality of infrastructure and manpower training responsible for most fatalities in navy or airforce.

Is the fire accidental or handi work of ISI agent. Lot many private contractors are working at MDL without proper background verification by our CID / IB. Some of these private contractors employ casual labours recruited from dubious anti national sources. SABOTAGE CAN NOT BE RULED OUT AND NIA MUST INVESTIGATE. Security checks at MDL is very poor though its premiere defence shipyard of the country. MOD MUST LOOK INTO THE FIRE INCIDENT VERY SERIOUSLY.

I suspect a deliberate foul play and someone blacksheep inside working for the enemies across the borders, through enemies within. This is not the first time where fire breaks out concerning naval properties. A thorough inquiry will reveal the cause but not the person who caused it! NDA government needs to be very careful in recruiting personnel for such sensitive jobs and to be absorbed after a thorough vetting.

It is surprising that since last few months in Mazgaon Dock, Mumbai & in the Arabian sea Indian Navy Ships & Submarines are the victims of fire! It seems some insiders or contract workers in collaboration with Pakistani Terrorists are involved. Earlier such incidencees like fire was never herd as there was no contract workers or contractors.

Fires in crucial places and very frequent loss of planes is sure sign of something manmade happenings. A serious investigation must be made.
