    Kennedy Town - Fire / Thick Black Smoke

    Not sure what’s happening - thick black smoke rising from around corner, somewhere near the EPD garbage transfer on Victoria Rd, KT. Name:  B4B41E7B-AED0-40AF-8300-FDBA74844017.jpeg

    Lots of firetrucks and ambulances heading that way. Smoke is acrid and burns throat.

    Wow, looks like quite an intense fire. Hard to tell how large the boat is from the photo.

    Have a GeoExpat related problem - please create a support ticket.

    I’m NOT sure of this - but it might have been the Supertee pleasure craft. I checked the marine nav app as soon as i saw smoke and there was already a fireboat on site, as well as the Supertee nearby. According to the app its still there, close to shore, halfway between the transfer station and the University of Chicago.

    Apologies, it was not the Supertee, i guess they were hanging around to help. It was the Rainbow No 2. Good thing they didnt have a full load.
