Water, water everywhere comes in handy when boat bursts into flames

Boston and Massport fire crews pour water on burning boat

The Boston Fire Department reports a small craft anchored in Boston Harbor near Rowes Wharf burst into flames late this afternoon. BFD and Massport fire crews doused the flames with harbor water, then towed what was left of the boat to the dock to make sure they could cool hot spots to keep them from re-erupting into flames.

Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


Seems like there is a side story... where is BFD's LARGE fireboat Damrell? When we had a fire it was ALSO A NO SHOW. 3 BOATS LOST & BFD BOAT DIDN'T SHOW UP!!!
