FIRE AT WINDERMERE AQUATICS
A significant fire has just been extinguished by the Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service in a Bowness on Windermere boatyard tonight.
The premises belong to Windermere Aquatics on Glebe road. The fire was so severe that the Fire Service used six pumping services, two land Rovers an aerial ladder platform and a major rescue vehicle. They have also requested the assistance of a boat.
The asbestos roof on the building has gone and the premises were storing many boats, some reports estimate as many as 90 although at this time this is just an estimate and cannot be confirmed.
Early reports suggest that many boats have been saved due to the fantastic work of the fire crews.
The fire crew are also taking care of the water runoff in order to protect the lake.
There havenít been any reports of any injuries.
The Harbourguides Crew have a boat moored at this marina and will be able to report more on the matter once we visit at the weekend.
In the meantime letís hope the reports that no one has been injured are accurate.
