TWO CRAFT were destroyed in a shoreside blaze at Kip Marina. In the early hours of Sunday 10 February an 18 metre power boat and a 40ft yacht were engulfed in flames, while numerous yachts laid up close by are expected to suffer from heat damage.

Five fire appliances attended the scene and the A78 was closed for eight hours with traffic diverted through Inverkip village.

A Kip Marina spokesman confirmed that thankfully no one was injured.
