MOSCOW (AP) — A fire on one of the Russian navy’s deep-sea submersibles killed 14 sailors, the Russian Defense Ministry said Tuesday without giving the cause of the blaze or saying if there were survivors.

The ministry didn’t name the vessel that caught fire Monday, but Russian media reported it was Russia’s most secret submarine, a nuclear-powered vessel designed for sensitive missions at great ocean depths.

Russian President Vladimir Putin canceled a scheduled appearance and summoned his defense minister to get briefed on the situation.

The Defense Ministry said in a statement that the fire broke out while the submersible was measuring sea depths in Russia’s territorial waters and the vessel had since arrived at the Arctic port of Severomorsk, the main base of Russia’s Northern Fleet. An investigation was underway, it said.
