F/V Juno Afire

F/V JUNO, a 131-foot, Westport-based fish processor, reportedly caught fire around 1:30a.m. on December 28, while moored at her pier. The master was on board at the time, but evacuated safely. No other crew were reported on board.

The Coast Guard and Westport Fire Department doused the fire by about 4am, they estimated about 5,000 gallons of firefighting water remained aboard JUNO, causing her to list. The water will be removed and possible pollution sources will be identified and contained. No pollution has been reported. A full investigation of the cause of the fire is underway.
