Fire Breaks Out At Winthrop Harbor Boat Warehouse
Skipper Buds Says It’s ‘Largest Marine Dealer In The Midwest’

WINTHROP HARBOR, Ill. (CBS) An extra-alarm fire broke out Friday morning at a boat sales warehouse in far north suburban Winthrop Harbor near the Wisconsin border.

A fifth alarm was called for the fire at Skipper Buds boat sales warehouse, marina and repair shop, according to a Winthrop Harbor fire dispatcher.

Skipper Buds is located at 215 Northpointe Drive just off Sheridan Road and is the “largest marine dealer in the Midwest,” according to their website.

The fire was burning in one of several a large steel-clad buildings where boats are stored for the winter on trailers. The blaze broke out at 8:30 a.m., and firefighters struggled fighting the fire fueled by plastics and synthetics.

Crews from both Illinois and Wisconsin municipalities responded to the scene.

There were no reported injuries.
