Capital City Fire/Rescue

10-10-2016 Boat Fire Aurora Harbor

On Monday, October 10, 2016, at approximately 2:20 PM, Capital City Fire Rescue responded to a boat fire at the Aurora Boat Harbor. Upon arrival, fire personnel found an unoccupied boat with a small fire in the hull. The owner had been in the process of dismantling the vessel, that was made of wood, and burning the materials. The owner started a fire in a burn container earlier in the day and then left it unattended. The fire spread from the container and burned the wooden hull. Assistance was given to CCFR from the CBJ Docks & Harbors personnel with their skiff and the U.S. Coast Guard since the fire was outside of the harbor breakwater. There were no injuries reported and the value of the boat is unknown. Submitted by: Fire Marshal Daniel Jager
