Fire at Mumbai Dockyard Injures Three

Three people have been injured in a fire that broke out this morning on the Indian navy’s frigate INS Ganga while undergoing refit at a naval dockyard in Mumbai, local media reported.

INS GANGA

The fire is said to have started in the ship’s boiler room during welding work.

The injured, two civilians and a naval officer, sustained minor burns and were rushed to the hospital for medical assistance.

Since August last year, the Indian Navy’s reputation has been marred by various naval accidents, from ships running aground to those of greater consequence such as the explosion on the Navy’s submarine INS Sindhurakshak, that took  the lives of 18 crew members.
