Yacht Fire in Poole Harbour
One person's been injured after a motor cruiser caught fire in Poole Harbour.
It broke out on a Sealine S37 on Saturday afternoon (July 21st); there were four crew aboard the vessel.
Portland Coastguard received a 999 call from the crew of a nearby yacht informing them that the motor cruiser alongside at Cobbs Quay
Marina was on fire, and was in need of urgent assistance.
Coastguard Rescue officers from Poole were sent to the scene and the Poole RNLI all weather and inshore lifeboats were requested to launch.
Also in attendance were the Dorset Fire and Rescue Service and the Dorset Police.
Mark Rodaway, Duty Area Officer, Portland Coastguard, said:
"There was a significant fire aboard the motor cruiser, we understand that one member of staff from Cobbs Quay has sustained injuries
in the nature of burns and smoke inhalation and is now receiving medical attention.
"The area surrounding the vessel is cordoned off and the fire service is dealing with the fire.
"This incident is a multi agency response coordinated by Portland Coastguard.
"Although one person has been injured we are fortunate there has been no loss of life."
