FIRE crews at­tended a boat blaze at Penton Hook Ma­rina in Chert­sey on Thurs­day night.

Fire­fight­ers from Egham, Staines and Chert­sey at­tended the scene shortly after 10pm along­side po­lice and am­bu­lance crews but it emerged that no-one was on board the ves­sel.

Boat units were de­ployed and the crews were at the scene for around 90 min­utes. The cause of the fire is not yet known.

MDL Mari­nas, which owns Penton Hook, con­firmed that the fire was on a cus­tomer’s boat.

A spokesman said: “The fire was quickly con­tained and ex­tin­guished. The swift ac­tion of our staff and the emer­gency ser­vices pre­vented any fur­ther dam­age. We are now work­ing with the owner and rel­e­vant par­ties to in­ves­ti­gate the fire fur­ther.”
