(Kittery, Me.) – The Navy has announced plays to decommission the USS Miami.
The Los Angeles-class submarine suffered over $700-million in damage in an arson fire in May of 2012 while it was in dry-dock at the Portsmouth Navy Yard. Shipyard employee Casey Fury of Portsmouth was charged with setting the fire and was sentenced to 17 years in federal prison.
Initial plans to repair the ship were scrapped when final cost estimates were received.
The decommissing ceremony will be held Friday morning at 10 in the shipyard auditorium with Captain Thomas Mader delivering the keynote address. The retired Captain was the first Commanding Officer when the Miami was commissioned in 1990.
