USS Bonhomme Richard fire

Things have gone from bad to worse. A mast is down and the ship is listing because of the water used in fire fighting. I've just been reading an article by a chap called Ismay!
Aricle says the ships Halon system was not working. I thought the navy had gotten rid of Halon. They made us get rid of all our Halon because of the enviromental problems. It was the best fire suppresion system I've seen. Hope they get it under control.
