This Raging Boat Fire is No Laughing Matter

A drone video captured some very brave marine firefighters trying to get the best of a multiple-boat fire right in the middle of this marina.

The Port of Everett marina on Possession Sound in Washington State was the backdrop for a horrible fire featuring multiple boats in the same slip.

Crews can be seen fighting the fire from the docks and from the water in this startling footage, all captured by a drone.

Here's the video:

At least five different boats can be seen burning in the video, which doesn't seem to have an audio feed. At one point, the boat crew, blinded by the smoke and flames, clobbers the dock crew with its water cannon, but backs off to carry on.

Two lucky ship captains managed to watch their vessels be pulled out by firefighters before their boats could catch fire and create another problem for the brave fire crews. Even at 15 full minutes of video, the smoke and flames still raged on, showing what firefighters have to deal with everyday of their professional lives.

Thanks to Facebook user Brian Muscatell for sharing this amazing drone footage of our brave firefighting crews and the excellent work that they do to keep us safe every day!
