1Title:  Navy response to Freedom of Information Act request following fire on board USS Miami Add
 Summary:  This document is the U.S. Navy's response to a Freedom of Information Act request placed by WCSH 6, a Portland, Maine NBC affiliate television station. The request was placed as part of the station's investigative reporting following a May 2012 fire on board the USS Miami, an attack submarine that was undergoing an Engineering Overhaul (EOH) at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard at the time of the fire. The response document includes information on the scope of the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program and the current size of the Navy's nuclear fleet. It also provides a high-level description of pressurized water reactors and the barriers in place to prevent the release of radioactivity from nuclear-powered submarines and ships. Two sections at the conclusion of the document address fires on board nuclear-powered warships.
