Fire Crews Mobilised After Reports Of Ship Fire

Fire crews from across west Cornwall raced to Falmouth this morning after reports of a fire on board a 25,000 tonne ship in the Docks. An alarm went off on the vessel at 10.40am, prompting a frantic race to the area for crews from Falmouth, Truro, Redruth and Camborne. However, when they arrived, no sign of a fire could be found, and it was eventually discovered that water had got into the alarm system, prompting the alert.
