Press Release

January 17, 2014

The Norwalk Fire Department responded to a fire on an Oyster Boat docked at Norm Blooms and Son Oyster Company at 7 Edgewater Place in East Norwalk. The fire was aboard a 42 foot Oyster Boat called the Vigilant and was called in by employees at 3:44pm. Employees of the Oyster Company were dumping water into the wheel house of the boat when firefighters arrived on scene. The fire was still smoldering below deck and under the wheel house as firefighters board the vessel from the dock to disconnect the boats batteries and extinguish some hot spots to ensure the fire was completely out. The boat remained afloat and tied to the dock during the incident.

21 Firefighters responded by land and 4 firefighters responded aboard the Departments Fireboat, to the scene. The Fire Marshal’s Division is investigating the cause of the fire and the Coast guard will be sending a representative to the scene. No injuries were reported from the employees or Firefighters.
