Welding operations on one of the aircraft carrier's power units was ongoing on the morning of December 12, 2019, when a fire broke out. A fire on Russia's only aircraft carrier injured two service members, Russian military officials said Thursday.
State-run news agencies have warned the fire is spreading and is now covering 120 square metres of the huge ship. The Russian Emergencies Ministry cited three injured.
"Safety rules' violation is considered as a likely cause of the blaze".
Television footage showed emergency workers near the ship, which was spewing dark grey smoke from one side. The massive blaze follows a 70-ton crane crashing onto the Admiral Kuznetsov's deck in October 2018 when a mammoth floating dock holding the ship sank.

The Admiral Kuznetsov - launched in 1985 and the flagship of the Russian navy - has been undergoing its first major repairs since 1997.
The Admiral Kuznetsov gained notoriety in Britain in 2017 when then-Defence Secretary Michael Fallon dubbed it the "ship of shame" as it passed through waters close to the English coast en route back from the Mediterranean belching black smoke.
The ship suffered several mishaps during the mission, including the crash of two fighter jet into the sea while trying to land on the carrier.
It also stopped off the coast of Libya in January 2017 and took on board military strongman Khalifa Haftar, who Russian Federation has reportedly backed in the country's long-running civil conflict.
