2007-07-15 Portsmouth Fire Marine 1 taking care of business (St Julian's Creek - Chesapeake)

EVENT DATE: 15 JUL 2007 1100 Local
Location: St Julian's Creek - Chesapeake

Mishap: Sail Boat & Overhead Power Line make contact. Sail Boat fully engulfed and Portsmouth Fire Marine 1 responded and took care of business in short order.

Here's a report (Powerpoint presentation).

Lots more photos here, with many thanks to Vice Captain Ricky Dunnington.
