Video: Emergency crews battle shrimp trawler fire near Core Creek bridge

Emergency crews from several departments battled a boat fire near the Core Creek bridge Tuesday evening. Carteret County Fire Marshall Eddie Lewis says the fire was reported at about 4:45 p.m. and crews arrived to find a shrimp trawler burning near the dock. The trawler– which Lewis says he can comfortably confirm was a fishing vessel — was a 1987 built, 56-foot boat named the Melissa Ann II– and was occupied by two people at the time of the fire.
