UPDATE: Blaze Destroys Landmark Building at Quissett Harbor Boatyard

A fire Wednesday afternoon tore through a Falmouth boatyard warehouse that has stood since the 1930s.

At about 2 p.m. firefighters from five departments responded to the two-alarm fire at the Quissett Harbor Boatyard on Quissett Harbor Road. Flames reached well above the building’s roof and were visible from miles away.

No one was in the building, which serves as a workshop and provides storage for boats and equipment, when the fire started, said Weatherly Dorris, who owns the boatyard.

An update:

Dorris, whose family has operated the boatyard in the southeast corner of Buzzards Bay for the past 54 years, told us that she intends to rebuild on the same footprint as the old 2-story building, which had been in use since the late 1800s. “We will be open for business this spring,” Dorris stated, adding that launching and rigging of boats kept at the yard will not be affected by the blaze.
