  1. Boat fire at Willowbridge marina

    No damage to any others lady in Boat next door was got out the boat with her animals. Rescue services were there very quickly, tho the fire was intense, it is total destroyed. amazing how quick the fire took hold, took the fire services a while to put out.
  2. This morning a fire broke out on a old Dutch Barge on the hardstanding. fire brigade and response vehicles in attendance. No one hurt, but was a castrafic fire for the very old Dutch Barge. it looks to be a total Loss. the fire took and is still taking a fair amount of time to be put out and made safe. Marina and fire service seemed to have it all under control the fire service is still on site Photos taken after the fire flames were put out
