Navy will scrap fire-ravaged Bonhomme Richard | Navy Times

The US Navy has decided not to repair the amphibious assault ship Bonhomme Richard that caught fire for more than four days this summer in San Diego. The repair is estimated to be costly and the Navy is conducting four separate investigations into the fire, including a criminal probe into whether it was caused by arson. The ship will likely be stripped of all usable parts in San Diego before it is eventually towed to the Gulf Coast for decommissioning, Rear Ad. Eric Ver Hage said.
