Stamford, CT – At 6:17 pm the Stamford 911 center received multiple calls reporting a boat on fire in the parking lot at 41 Bateman Way, the Ponus Yacht Club.

First arriving fire units from the South End fire station found an approximately 24-foot boat on a trailer well involved in fire. The fire was exposing an adjacent boat, winterized with shrink wrap, parked in close proximity.

Two hose lines were stretched, one with fire suppressing foam, which quickly brought the fire under control.

The 1991 Grady-White boat was heavily damaged by the fire, but there were no injuries to civilians or fire personnel. Stamford’s waterways were unaffected by the fire.

A first alarm assignment of 26 fire personnel responded to control the incident. The Stamford fire boat was dispatched, but cancelled once the fire was determined to be on land.

The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection was notified as well as the Stamford Harbor Master.

The cause of the fire is being investigated by the Stamford Fire Marshal’s Office.
