Default Extinguish Fire Question?

Is there anyway to put out a fire onboard, I was playing as a ship, one of my life boats caught fire, no other damage to the ship, but this thing keeps burning?

I've never played a surface ship in this game yet.


Do you have a damage control team?

What if anything do you have on your ship administration Damage control page?

How long has it been burning?

Yes I have a damage team but there is nothing showing that needs repairing.

Fire has been burning for around 30 - 40 mins.

Not sure how to deploy the lifeboat, didn't think of that.

A left over of the stock damage zones for surface ships, fire wasn't modeled into SH3/4 like it was in 2. Don't remember if it will burn itself out or not but you can't put it out.

There is a mod for SH3 where a vessel on fire degrades to being destroyed.

So it seems you are right nothing in the sim relating to putting out a fire, I wonder if someone who is a lot more skilled than me can do a fire extinguishing mod lol, or where a fire can burn out if it is not too severe?
