Small Fire At Electric Boat Shipyard

GROTON, Conn. (AP) _ A spokesman for Electric Boat says a minor equipment fire at a dock at the submarine maker caused some damage to equipment, but caused no injuries.

Spokesman Robert Hamilton said Wednesday that the fire at a dock used for repairs and construction was put out minutes after it was reported.

Hamilton said the USS Toledo was in the same basin at the shipyard but was not involved in the fire.

No other details were immediately available. The cause of the fire is being investigated.

Electric Boat in southeastern Connecticut is a subsidiary of General Dynamics Corp.
