USS Bonhomme Richard on fire
The amphibious assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD-6) is on fire in the port of navy base San Diego. So far, eighteen crew members have been transported to hospital.
The fire started on Sunday morning, 12 July 2020, around 08:30 hrs local time. Fire crews are battling an ongoing blaze aboard the amphibious assault ship.
The primary mission of the ship is to embark, deploy and land elements of a Marine landing force in amphibious assault operations by helicopter, landing craft and amphibious vehicle, and if needed, to act as a light aircraft carrier.

The ship also appears to be listing to the side and down at the bow as well.
There were a bunch of videos in this post that showed close up angles during the night and this morning, but it looks like they've been made private now.

Absolutely insane that a capital ship can be totally lost in an incident like this.
