Six boats burst into flames early Friday morning in the storage yard of the Mystic Wellington Yacht Club in Medford.
The yacht club is located on the Mystic River in Medford directly next-door to Station Landing and directly across the river from Assembly Row Somerville.
According to sources at the scene, six boats in total were on fire and heavily damaged, two of the six were deemed total losses.
Sources also told us that the boat where the fire originated before spreading to the other five boat was shrunk wrapped with no electricity plugged into it and on dry dock at the time of the blaze during Friday’s early morning rain.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
