Chicoutimi Back in Port

HMCS Chicoutimi made it to port, according to this CTV article. That's good news for all concerned.

Update 12Oct: This article from the New Zealand Herald has a description of the fire. Submariners practice fighting fires with "vision-impairment" (normally, black nylons or fast-food style green hairnets) because of the possibility that smoke could rapidly fill the compartment. The fire must have happened while the boat was surfaced (which I suppose is normal for a diesel boat making a long transit), since it mentions fighting 30 degree rolls while fighting the fire.
