Historic fireboat on display in New London
New London — The Sosa family of New Britain was among visitors Saturday taking tours of the historic fireboat Fire Fighter docked at the Custom House Pier.
The vessel, which served the Fire Department of the city of New York from 1938 to 2010, is operated out of Greenport, N.Y., as America's Fireboat-Fire Fighter Museum. It will be docked at the pier in New London awaiting an opening at a Rhode Island shipyard for maintenance.
Tours of no more than 12 visitors on board at one time are from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Fire Fighter was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1989.
