Jacksonville Fire used several MetalCraft Marine fireboats in response to a massive fire aboard the car carrier Hoëgh Xiamen at Blount Island terminal, which began on June 4th and burned through June 11th.

We have several photos taken over several days in our Flickr album.

The fire involved over 150 firefighters, nine of whom were hurt in an explosion on board.

First Coast News and Firefighter.com also have reports.

The Jacksonville Association of Firefighters has a fundraising site to help the injured firefighters in their recuperation at home.
