17 years and $400M in restitution for USS Miami arsonist


 

PORTLAND, Maine – A former Portsmouth Naval Shipyard worker who set fire to the USS Miami nuclear submarine was sentenced Friday to a little more than 17 years in federal prison and ordered to pay restitution of $400M.


Casey James Fury, 26, formerly of Portsmouth, was a painter and sandblaster for three years at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine, when he set a fire on May 23 in a stateroom so he could be sent home from work. The blaze, fueled by the enamel paint on the submarine's ceilings and walls, caused $450 to $500 million in damage.
