UPDATED – BREAKING: ‘Cold Water Cowboys’ fishing boat catches fire at Newfoundland wharf

Plumes of smoke could be seen coming from the wharf near a fish plant in Twillingate, N.L., this morning after a longliner caught fire. Deborah Bourden, who operates the nearby Anchor Inn Hotel and Suites, says the boat that caught fire is the Sebastian Sails, a fishing vessel that had been featured on the reality television series “Cold Water Cowboys.” She says the town’s fire department responded not long after the fire broke out just before 6 a.m. Bourden says she talked to a firefighter at the scene, and was told that the fire is now under control and no one was hurt. Bourden says there were explosions heard and it’s believed they originated from propane tanks on the boat. >click to read<08:32
