This looks like it could be a torpedo explosion like the one that blew up Kursk almost exactly 13 years ago. It's hard to say for sure. I put up a little analysis of that here – http://keshavkrishnamurty.blogspot.in/2013/08/ins-sindhurakshak-on-fire-battery-fire.html Way too many Russian torpedoes use Kerosene and Hydrogen Peroxide. If the last modernization didn't remove any rust from the torpedo tubes, peroxide from a leaking torpedo could have reacted with the rust and set off a huge fire (and set off torpedo warheads as well).

Just as IAF squadrons are getting depleted due to outdated MIG21. The Indian Navy is experiencing the same with out dated Russian kilo class diesel submarines. Sindhurakshak class. Nearly 90 million dollars have gone down the drain with irreparable loss of 18 sailor lives.
