Fire destroys fishing vessel in Witless Bay early Saturday morning

Fire destroyed a small fishing vessel in Witless Bay early Saturday morning. An official on scene told The Telegram that the fire was reported by fishermen from another vessel docked nearby. When firefighters from the Witless Bay volunteer fire department arrived on scene at the town’s fish plant, they found the boat fully engulfed in flames. It took them about an hour to completely extinguish the blaze, including some hard-to-reach hotspots between sections of the hull but by then, the boat was taking on water through some of the holes that had burned through the sides. >click to read<09:21
