Boat catches fire at ma­rina

Daily Mercury - - NEWS - — JA­COB MI­LEY

A COM­MER­CIAL ves­sel was dam­aged af­ter it caught alight while docked in the Mackay ma­rina.

Emer­gency ser­vices were called to the ma­rina about 8.30am but when crews ar­rived, the blaze had al­ready been ex­tin­guished by by­standers.

Se­nior fire­fighter Michael Perry said crews worked to make the area safe on ar­rival. He said a “fair bit of dam­age” had been caused.

He took the time to re­mind the com­mu­nity to not leave cook­ing equip­ment unat­tended.
