Boat catches fire at marina
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.
