There was a minor fire on board India’s aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya on Saturday morning, a Navy spokesperson said.
The fire was doused and all personnel on board are safe, the spokesperson said in a statement here. “The duty staff observed smoke emanating from the part of the warship having accommodation for sailors. The ship’s duty personnel acted promptly to fight the fire. All personnel on board have been accounted for and no major damage has been reported,” the statement read.
An inquiry into the incident is being ordered, he said, adding the aircraft carrier is in Karnataka’s Karwar harbour.


The warship is a modified Kiev-class aircraft carrier purchased by India from Russia in 2013 and was renamed in honour of Vikramaditya, the legendary emperor.
Originally built as Baku and commissioned in 1987, the carrier served with the Soviet (until the dissolution of the Soviet Union) and Russian Navies before being decommissioned in 1996, it being too expensive to operate.
INS Vikramaditya, a floating airfield, has an overall length of 284 metres and a maximum beam of 60 metres, stretching as much as three football fields put together.


Standing about 20 storeys tall from the keel to the highest point, the ship has a total of 22 decks and carries around 1,600 personnel.

Wow that ship has a tall tower, one big wave and it might topple over.

This question may seem childish, but why it is Indian navy that is always on fire. Fire in subs, fire in ships, now fire on carrier... Why?

Its mean not only Indian maintenance team but also planning team is not have capacity to identify, when and what is required in a timeline. That is not a good picture for your country.
Being an Indian, I personally agree our planning teams are utter crap when it comes to procurement of defence systems...

Regarding fire onboard naval platforms, that has happened to every major naval force in existence.

Not newsworthy.
Minor fire, very little damage to ship and no injuries.
Insignificant event.

WHY ARE YOU HOSTILE TO ME WHEN ALL I'M DOING IS POINT OUT SOMETHING POSITIVE ABOUT PN--It is well known fact that no fire has broken out in Pakistani Aircraft Carrier. 'nuff said.
Calm down hero, pick someone your own size, compared to China, your Navy is pathetic.
