Scott Miser of the Piney Fire De­part­ment as­sess the dam­age af­ter a boat fire Thurs­day at 213 Ski Mo­tel Point in Royal. Piney Fire De­part­ment re­sponded to the fire just af­ter 9:30 a.m. Thurs­day, and Lake Hamil­ton Fire De­part­ment’s fire boat was on standby. “The own­ers said they thought they heard fire­works, but every fire start­ing sounds like that so there’s no way to tell what ac­tu­ally started the fire,” said Miser. Firefighte­rs were able to ex­tin­guish the fire within a few min­utes, min­i­miz­ing the dam­age to sur­round­ing struc­tures.
