A well-known fishing boat featured on Discovery Canada’s TV series Cold Water Cowboys appears to be lost after catching fire Monday morning at the fish plant wharf in Twillingate, N.L.
Images and video posted on social media Monday morning show plumes of smoke coming from the Sebastian Sails and wharf near the local fish plant.
According to reports, volunteer firefighters from the local fire department responded to the blaze shortly after the fire broke out around 6 a.m.
Crews were on the scene for at least three hours fighting the blaze.
Other boats in the area were moved to safety.
The Sebastian Sails, under Captain Morris Anstey was featured on Cold Water Cowboys for four seasons.
