Oak Bay and Victoria fire departments, along with the Canadian Coast Guard responded to a boat fire in Cadboro Bay Saturday morning (Feb. 18) around 8:30 a.m.
The Oak Bay Fire Department said the fire was resolved with the help of the coast guard, who made sure the debris was contained.
“When crews first arrived they saw a 30-foot sailboat fully engulfed,” said Oak Bay Deputy Chief Roger Stewart. “An additional boat that was in close proximity was damaged as well.”
Stewart said the owner of the boat was contacted and dive teams were dispatched to search the sunken boat.
