Everett Boathouse fire 1/14/2024Firefighters worked tirelessly in subfreezing temperatures to contain the fire and prevent it from spreading.

After a preliminary investigation, it is believed the fire originated from the compressor of a deep freezer plugged in on the dock. The freezer was not rated for outdoor use.

Fortunately, no injuries were reported, but two boathouses suffered heavy fire damage, with at least one total loss. The vessels stored in each house were also heavily damaged and are considered a total loss. The exterior of two other boathouses and their electrical boxes were also damaged due to the fire.

It took approximately 70 minutes to extinguish the fire. Leland Dart was able to capture photos of the fire:
