Boat Bursts into Flames in Port Colborne Marina

August 26, 2019

They had to abandon ship in Port Colborne, after a boat burst into flames in Sugarloaf Marina.

Fire crews were called out to the area yesterday afternoon.

Witnesses say the boat had just finished refueling, when the fire started about 100 metres from the dock.

Thankfully no one was hurt.

Reports say the wind blew the burning vessel into the dock, hitting several other boats.

Other boaters tried to create waves to push the boat into a breakwall so fire crews could take care of it.

Two other boats sustained minor damage.
