Fire Onboard Royal Australian Navy Submarine

This afternoon HMAS Waller, one of the Royal Australian Navy’s submarines, experienced a fire whilst on the surface off the West Australian coast. Emergency response actions were taken to extinguish the fire.

There were no causalities. As a precaution four members of the ship’s crew who were involved in the response to the fire have been landed for observation.


HMAS Waller had recently completed a scheduled maintenance period and was at sea as part of her return to operations.

A full investigation into the incident will be held.

At this stage no further details are available.
