Burns Harbor Returns to Bay Shipbuilding After Fire

On March 26, the Selvick Marine Towing tug William C. Gaynor (with other tugs assisting) towed the 1,000-foot Burns Harbor backward along Memorial Drive to return it to Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding after an electrical fire broke out in the Burns Harbor’s bow shortly after it passed the Bayview Bridge.
