$400 Million in Damage to Nuclear Submarine Because Worker Wanted to Get Off Early

A blaze that caused $400 million in damage to a U.S nuclear submarine was first blamed on a faulty vacuum cleaner.  However, an investigation revealed a civilian employee set the fire to get out of work early.  Attorney's for the arsonist claim he suffered from anxiety and was on anti-depressants at the time.
Casey James Fury, 24, of Portsmouth, N.H., faces up to life in prison if convicted of two counts of arson in the fire aboard the USS Miami attack submarine while it was in dry dock May 23.
