Coast Guard clean-up efforts continue at Norfolk marina

NORFOLK, Va. – The Coast Guard continues to monitor clean-up efforts following a fire at the Vinings Landing Marina in Norfolk early Wednesday morning.

IMS Environmental and Moran Environmental Recovery have been hired to clean up and recover three sunken vessels.

A majority of the fuel spilled has dissipated or has been absorbed by the absorbent booms. A hard boom remains in place to keep debris from spreading.

The Coast Guard warns boaters to take caution when transiting near the marina and obey the no-wake zone as to not hamper clean-up efforts.

Initial reports from responders this morning stated a 45-foot sailing vessel caught fire and spread to adjacent recreational boats. The initial report has not been confirmed. The Norfolk Fire Marshal is currently investigating the cause of the fire.

Coast Guard personnel will continue to monitor the clean-up until it is complete.
