MOSCOW, December 15 (Itar-Tass) — The radiation background aboard the icebreaker Vaigach, where a fire broke out on Thursday morning, is normal, Rosatom (Federal Agency on Atomic Energy) announced.
The Rosatom announcement reads, "On December 14, at 22:58, when the nuclear-powered icebreaker Vaigach was piloting the ship Kapitan Danilkin along the Yenissei River, 70 miles to the north of port Dudinka, a fire broke out in the harbor cabins of the icebreaker. The open fire was localized at 02:35 on December 15 and put out by 04:30".
"There were no breaches of safe operation of equipment, or radiation consequences. The icebreaker's reactor is operating in a standard mode," Rosatom pointed out.
Engineer First Class Bazukov and senior foreman Morozov in charge of control instrumentation and automatic devices, died while extinguishing the fire. Shevchenko, a stand-in of the chief engineer of the watch, sustained burns of upper respiratory ways, and was evacuated to Dudinka.
In connection with the fire, criminal proceedings have been instituted under Article 109, Part 3, of the Penal Code of the Russian Federation -- "causing death of two or more persons by negligence". Members of the prosecutor's office of Karaul Settlement of Krasnoyarsk Territory have arrived at the ship for operative actions. Investigators have decided to carry out investigative operations in Krasnoyarsk Territory. In this connection the icebreaker Vaigach is to arrive at port Dudinka.
Rosatom has decided to render financial aid amounting to not less than one million rubles to the families of the fire victims.
