A witness reported seeing smoke coming from the boat about 3 p.m. while it was docked at Stamford Landing on Southfield Avenue, according to the report. When firefighters arrived, they found a 41-foot boat puffing black smoke from the hatches.
Authorities said they forced open the cabin door and found that the cabin had been heavily charred, though the fire had since put itself out.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
The owner of the boat was reportedly not in Stamford during the incident, authorities said
