The RCMP is investigating a fire that began on a fishing vessel in Port Hope Simpson late Monday night.

An alarm onboard the Labrador Current caught the attention of someone on a nearby boat who called authorities.

Local volunteer firefighters responded but were unable to fight the fire onboard the vessel.

Due to the close proximity of other vessels and fuel, the burning Labrador Current was towed away from the wharf and into the harbour where it continued to burn.

No one was onboard at the time of the fire.

The matter is still under investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact the Marys Harbour RCMP Detachment or Crime Stoppers.

Organizations: RCMP, Crime Stoppers

Geographic location: Port Hope Simpson
