Fire in Barrrow upon Soar damages barge
Firefighters made a desperate search of a canal barge engulfed in flames fearing there could be someone onboard.
Crews from Loughborough were called to the canal in Proctor’s Park Road, Barrow upon Soar, at 1am today after reports of a boat on fire.
They called for back-up from Syston because it was feared there may be people on the barge, which was well alight.
The fire crews soon confirmed that everyone was accounted for but the fire destroyed about half of the structure of the boat.
