Four injured, at least one critically, and one missing. A crane apparently fell, causing so e damage to the ship, but there are no details.

It's a safe bet to say that many, many heads are going to roll because of this. Human error, or sabotage, I wonder?.

The same thing happened to HMS Valiant in 1944, and occured due to human error.

Because smoke inside of it , this time .

Admiral Kuznetsov's woes continue. It's now facing an engine-room fire with one reported dead.
Having seen pictures of her while on fire, I can say that she makes less smoke that way then when she's actually sailing....
