Fire at Fishermans Wharf

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)




The warehouse is located next to the U.S. liberty ship SS Jeremiah O'Brien, one of several historic warships docked along side of the wharf. 

"Firefighters were able to save the SS Jeremiah O'Brien Museum from the flames. The fire is no longer in danger of spreading and is contained to one area of the pier," he said. "Multiple walls of the building have collapsed. No injuries have been reported and at least 130 firefighters are at the scene working to safely contain the fire."

"When firefighters arrived, the flames were literally lapping over the Jeremiah O'Brien," Baxter told CBS SF BayArea. "They literally saved the O'Brien."

Firefighters had contained the fire to the pier by 7 a.m. local time, but said it would not be fully extinguished for hours.

Anytime you hear pier and fire in the same sentence nothing good results. Glad they contained it.
