KITTERY, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- There has been another fire aboard the U.S.S. Miami at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.

A spokesperson says the fire was in a forward part of the ship, near the control area.  The Shipyard is expected to send a statement with more information.

This is the third fire on the ship in the past year.  The first two were set intentionally by shipyard worker Casey Fury last May.  He told investigators that he set them because he wanted to go home early.  One of the fires caused $450 million in damage.

On Friday, Fury was sentenced to 17 years and one month in prison.
