An early morning fire that broke out on a 30-foot vessel docked off Victoria Saturday has left the boat a complete write-off.
Victoria Fire Department responded to a call shortly after 1 a.m. on Jan. 27 that a pleasure craft was on fire at the Coast Harbourside Hotel marina. The four alarm fire was quickly extinguished and fortunately, no one was on board when the fire broke out.

Crews from the James Bay fire station tackled the flames with the use of a deck gun from their fire boat while a second crew shot water from the driveway of the hotel.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation but a space heater on board may have contributed to the blaze.
