Fishing boat destroyed in fire in Milford Sound

From Checkpoint, 6:23 pm on 14 September 2020

The quick action of some nearby fishers helped to save boats docked in Milford Sound after a vessel caught on fire early this morning.

A recreational fishing boat used for accomodation has been completely destroyed after it went up in flames.

A crew of fisherman neighbouring the boat saw it catch fire and quickly alerted fire and emergency and decided to do what they could to lend a hand.
