Dock FireSaturday, July 4th about 4:40 p.m., a boat had just finished refuelling at Bridge Port Marina in Orillia, Ontario when an explosion almost knocked marina President Trevor Lecluse right over. He was about 100 feet away when the fire erupted. Other marina staff were there as well.

Quick-thinking marina staff ensured boat fire was contained, with one Bridge Port staffer grabbing two fire extinguishers and holding the fire off long enough the one person onboard to get off the boat. Staff hit the marina emergency fuel system shut off, but the vessel’s fire suppression system did not deploy.
