Boat fire

A sailboat caught fire at the High Seas Fuel Dock on Shelter Island in San Diego. All I know is they had tied up there for the night. How it started or anything I do not know.

We saw the fire from the boat so I walked over. I know there were some dogs on board but did not hear if people where. I have not heard anything about condition of the dogs.

I will post more when I learn anything.

Re: Boat fire

years of basically living at a marina (father was a marine mechanic after leaving the navy and liveaboard friends) I have seen more than a few boats burnt to their waterlines.. creepy, sad, and scary all at the same time.

Keep us posted
