  1. Recently heard at NNSY that this fire was started by an electrical problem. Probably the kind of thing that happens in a lot of old structures built in the days before electricity and fire codes.

  2. I work at Norfolk Naval Shipyard (NNSY). This fire was in Quarters A, the traditional on-base home of the commanding officer, built in 1837. It is on the National Register of Historic Places, and was being restored when the fire broke out; needless to say, the fire undid the restoration and added more damage. We at NNSY haven't yet heard what started the fire, or when or if the damage will be repaired. Big thanks to Portsmouth FD for coming out to help.
