First off, being at a good port you've got covered.

More naval support probably also helps. (But, could you really get more there before Wasp either sinks or puts out the fires?)

Being disbanded in the port is best, if you were not near a port then having other ships in the same TF that have good crew ratings and (probably) good commander ratings would help.

Come to think of it, having a good commander on Wasp should also help. Now that she is disbanded in port you can replace the leader if need be. Look at the Leadership and Inspiration stats for this.

At this point, being that you have the ship disbanded in Los Angeles, probably just wait.

BTW, you will not be be able to go into anything other than "Readiness" type repairs until the fires are out.

Good luck.

You got her from Port Moresby to Los Angeles and she is still on fire???

I am not doubting you, but I have never ever seen that. Usually Allied ships burn for a max of 3 days. Unless they are over 50 fires and 50 system damage they are usually controlled.
Japanese ships may burn for longer but usually sink.

PM to LA for a damaged ship must of taken several weeks.

I am with Fallschirmjager, how did she get to LA from PM on fire without sinking? Do you have some screenshots? This would be interesting to see.

As for the fires, you just have to wait for them to go out. Like witpqs says leadership, naval support, port size are all things that can help shorten the procedure. I have not seen ships burn more than a few days, the crews either put out the fires or the ocean does when the ship sinks...

Agree with what FJ said. The longest fire I have ever seen burning on a ship was 4 days. Longer is guaranteed loss or fire is out by then. No way for a CV to survive
the whole trip from PM to LA burning, as fire dmg causes sys dmg continuousely.

Is it possible you are confusing dmg type? Or location where damage was inflicted? Screen would be interesting.

Anyways, if what you say is correct, LA should easily cover any ship with 66flt/41fires, except if sys dmg is completely off the roof, so no worries.

No worries, dough. Noone suggested a lie. Just that you might have missed something, as what you describe is unusual bordering impossible. It is either a bug or the damage is not as old as you think, or your interpretation of the situation is not correct.

Only thing I can think of too be burning upon arrival at LA after moving from Port Moresby would be it was attacked by a sub near the port, or possibly a critical failure on a damage control roll (if that is even possible).

This was my thought as well, but I have never had a ship catch fire from failing to control damage - just an increase in floatation damage.
