Boat fire at Willowbridge marina


Featured Posts

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

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.

Crying shame for any boat a bad fire.  Glad nobody got hurt.

You might be surprised what can be done with them after a fire though - I know of quite a few boats (not all called Phoenix!) - that have had a complete rebuild after a serious fire.

And an old Dutch barge in good condition would be a prime candidate for that ... an overplated Springer might not be.

This boat suffered a similar fate ; interesting that judging by its name the owner must have had a crystal ball.

Looking for offers around £2000
