Firefighters were called to a 30ft-long house boat which was on fire in a Cornish harbour. Two fire appliances from Falmouth fire station attended a report at 11pm on Sunday that smoke could be seen coming from a barge moored at Jubilee Wharf, in Penryn. The accommodation barge was heavily smoke- logged when crews arrived. Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus went onboard as coastguards provided waterside safety cover. No-one was found on board the boat or injured.
