Fire on trawler in Botnhamn
In the night of Dec 26, 2019, a fire broke out aboard the 'Segla' at the dock in Botnhamn. There were no persons on board. The Troms Police and fire crews from Finnsnes were alerted after a passersby remarked the fire at 9 p.m. Smoke divers of the Botnhamn Fire and Rescue started extinguishing the blaze and cooling the ship's interior down. The fire probably started on the factory deck near a grinding machine and was put out before spreading further. The rooms were then ventilated.
