Boat Catches Fire Outside Recycling Center

Fond du Lac, WI: On April 13, 2015 at 9:50 a.m. FDLFR responded to a reported boat on fire in the 200 Block of Morris Ct.  Upon arrival fire crews encountered heavy smoke and flames coming from a boat which was on a trailer away from the building. The fire was extinguished without causing damage to any nearby structures.  The fire is being investigated by police and fire investigators. Pictures and video can be obtained at on the FD’s twitter account: fdlfire.

Fire crews were hampered in securing water from a nearby fire hydrant located in the cul-de-sac due to a vehicle which parked in front of the hydrant. “ Motorists who park in front of fire hydrants probably never think today will be the day we will need to use it, said Fire Chief Peter O’Leary. Thankfully we were able to work around it this time, but hopefully the citation left for the driver by the police will keep them alert to fire hydrants in the future.”
