Two or three people were on a 32-foot recreational boat when it caught fire in the water near the fuel docks at the Harborage at Ashley Marina, Charleston interim Fire Chief John Tippett said.
“They’re kind of in shock, but they’re not injured,” he said of the occupants, who escaped before the boat sank.
The front of an adjacent 50-foot boat and a portion of the dock were also damaged in the fire. Tippett said the second boat is salvageable. No one was on that vessel at the time.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
