False alarm of ‘boat fire’ on River Nene

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Front Page -

TWO fire crews were called to a sus­pected boat fire at the River Nene yes­ter­day. A mem­ber of the public re­ported a sus­pected boat fire at 4.20pm. Crews from Dogsthorpe, Yax­ley and Stan­ground went to the scene but couldn’t find a boat on fire. It is thought the caller may have misiden­ti­fied smoke from a train. A fire spokes­woman said: “We think it was a false alarm.”
