The 24-year old civilian laborer Casey James Fury who was working as a painter and sandblaster on the $400-million nuclear sub was anxious to go home early so he set fire to the sub USS Miami!!!

The sub was in the dry dock of Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine and had come for an overhaul.

The fire damaged the torpedo room and command area inside the forward compartment and it took 12-hours to extinguish it.

This has been reported in theaustralian.com.au of dated 24th of July 2012.

It seems he was taking medication for anxiety and depression.

If convicted of the charge, Fury could face life imprisonment apart from a fine of up to $US250,000 and be ordered to pay restitution.
