New Bedford Fire Department respond to reports of a fishing vessel on fire

“This morning at 1055 hrs, the New Bedford Fire Department received 911 calls reporting a fishing vessel fire at the southeast end of Leonard’s Wharf. Upon arrival, Command reported smoke extending from the F/V Prowess which was moored to two other fishing vessels. Crews advanced one handline and extinguished the fire. Crews performed ventilation and checked for fire extension with the assistance of battery-powered rotary and reciprocating saws. Marine 38 responded and was used to push the three vessels together due to the wind separating them making climbing between them hazardous. photos, >click to read< 19:16
