Two boats sink in Portsmouth fire
By News Staff
Fire officials are investigating after 3 boats caught fire early Monday morning, sinking 2 of them.
Crews were called to Hickley Marina just before 5 a.m. when they found two vessels heavily involved in fire at the dock. Another boat later caught fire.
The fire was extinguished about a half hour later but not before two of the vessels had sunk.
A firefighter fell into the water trying to fight the blaze but was quickly removed and uninjured.
The fire marshal’s office is currently on scene investigating the cause.
