Fire destroys boat.
A LATE MORNING fire destroyed a boat berthed in the Shallow Draught yesterday.
Two fire tenders from the Probyn Street, Bridgetown station responded to a call about the Ponfly around 11:46 a.m.
Reports indicate that the boat, owned by 81-year-old Aubrey Maloney, of Lennox Avenue, Goodland, St Michael, was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived on the scene.
The boat, which was berthed overnight, appeared to be unoccupied when the fire was noticed. Other boats were not affected. Police and fire officials are investigating. (YB)
