Yeoman Bontrup ship fire news


Not a lot to report today, the fire is out but the vessel remains on the berth at Glensanda on Lock Linnhe. The tug Svitzer Musselwick is still at the scene as is the Coast Guard tug Anglian Soveriegn, i think these 2 vessels were on hand to help fight the fire. There were a number of large explosions heard locally and it is thought that these were due to gas bottles exploding onboard. It was declared yesterday that there was no pollution from the fire and that the ships fuel tanks have remained intact. The emergency services have remained on scene and continue to damp down the ship.
