Firefighters were called to a boat which was on fire on a canal in Northwich. The boat was well alight on the arrival of the crews and contained cylinders. All persons were accounted for and the firefighters extinguished the blaze using a main water jet.

The boat needed cooling due to the cylinders and water was used to do this. A thermal imaging camera was also used to check for hot spots on the craft. Canal and River Trust officers were in attendance at the incident.
