Russia Submarine Fire

In this Saturday, July 29, 2007 file photo the Vilyuchinsk submarine is moored at a harbor on the Pacific peninsula of Kamchatka. The Orel submarine, of the same type as the Vilyuchinsk, caught fire during repairs at the Zvezdochka shipyard in Severodvinsk, about 1000 kilometers (620 miles) north of Moscow on the White Sea. A Russian naval blue-white flag is seen atop the sub's conic tower, and a blue-white-red Russian naval jack, a ship's bow flag, in the foreground. (AP Photo/File)
