Fire rages in Ocean Village for nearly an hour. No other boats damaged

A 39ft yacht moored at Ocean Village marina, Southampton has been completely destroyed by fire. No one was hurt in the incident and no other boats were damaged, although a second yacht was moved when propane cylinders were found on board and surrounding boats were sprayed to cool them.

Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service were in attendance within seven minutes of the first call being recieved just after 11pm and it took the 16 firefighters 45 minutes to deal with the blaze.
