Fire destroys Richmond Marine

April 9, 2007

RICHMOND — Fire destroyed Richmond Marine & Sports this (Monday) morning.

A spark from static electricity ignited gasoline that was being transferred from a boat to a container, according to Fire Chief Chuck Merten who is also part owner of the business.

Five employees were inside the business when the fire started. They tried to put out the fire with extinguishers but it spread to the roof.

The call came in at 8:26 a.m. The building is at 45-Fourth Ave. in Richmond.

Cold Spring and Rockville firefighters were also on the scene.

The fire started in the shop and spread throughout the building.

Merten estimated the damage at $800,000 to $900,000. Firefighters are tearing down what’s left of the building and then the rubble will be sprayed with foam
