Dock fire: more excitement for the Bay Area

We have a massive fire on the car-loading dock in Benecia, CA yesterday, apparently still burning now; dock is almost completely destroyed. I’m guessing we’ll soon have more car-carriers moored out an S.F. Anchorage #9 soon… there are still car-unloading facilities in Richmond, but Benecia will be out of action for awhile. The article shows one car carrier who moved away from the dock when the fire started; probably desperately trying to figure out what her options are now; note that the reporter called her a ‘container ship’ …


That is an improvement, usually every ship is called a tanker.
Maybe the news about problems with keeping Walmart etc. stocked was caused by container ships has had an effect??

Well, they managed to get it “right” this time… this morning the car carrier is a tanker, rather than a container ship!! Consistency is important when reporting the news…


Kinda reminds me of when the Orange and Market Street wharfs caught fire in New Orleans.
