While preliminary reports indicated a 31-foot boat was fully-involved when they arrived, fire officials said in a release Saturday that it was a 38-foot boat “well-involved in fire.”
The fire in the cabin cruiser broke out shortly after noon. Over 20 fire officials headed to the site of the fire, according to the release, and there weren’t any injuries reported.
“Firefighters arrived on scene in less than four minutes and found a 38-foot cabin cruiser that was well-involved in fire and located at a dock behind 109 Dolphin Cove Quay,” a release from Stamford Fire read. “Fire personnel were able to quickly extinguish and contain the fire and prevent any environmental damage to the harbor.”
At 12:42 p.m., the bulk of the fire had been extinguished. Firefighters on shore and on a boat brought the fire under control.
The boat was secured to prevent it from drifting. Firefighters reported no fuel or oil was seen in the water. The Coast Guard had contacted the fire department for details, officials said.
Dolphin Cove was developed in 1972. The land had been part of the 121-acre estate of C. Russell Feldmann, an industrial mogul involved in the manufacturing of radios and cars.
Beginning on a street named Dolphin Cove Quay, a swath of closely clustered colonial homes forms its own enclave. Each of the private roads have nautical-inspired names such as Joshua Slocum Dock, named after the first man to sail around the world.
The city fire marshal’s office is looking into what caused the blaze.
