On June 12, fire broke out onboard a French Navy nuclear submarine docked at the Mediterranean port of Toulon and was raging for about 14 hours.

According to French aurthorities, nobody was hurt and no nuclear materials or weapons were on board the vessel, the Perle, which was in dry dock for repairs.

Toulon is the French biggest naval base and is home to most of its fleet, including the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle, nuclear submarines and other warships. The Ruby-class nuclear submarine Perle was launched in 1990 and started active service in 1993.
