Fire on Barge Presented No Danger

An unattended barrel fire on one of the construction barges at “C” Dock posed no threat to life, equipment, or property.  Tall flames were spotted from Bayview Avenue just before noon and a call was placed to the Put-in-Bay Police Department.  The fire alarm was signaled, ironically, at the same moment the First Friday Warning System Siren sounded.  A prompt response by Police, EMS, and the Fire Department quickly determined an “all clear.”
