Cabin cruiser a total loss after fire on Lake Lanier

POSTED: June 5, 2008 5:00 a.m.
A 30-foot-long cabin cruiser caught fire Sunday afternoon at Holiday Marina on Lake Lanier. The boat was a total loss, but no one was seriously injured in the fire, Hall County Fire Chief David Kimbrell said.

The boat’s owner had filled the cruiser with 45 gallons of gas at the marina’s refueling dock when a fire started in the engine. He was the only one aboard when the fire ignited.

Hall County firefighters responded to the fire at about 3 p.m. Half of the boat was on fire when the fire department arrived.

Kimbrell said the blaze was quickly contained, and there were no major injuries. One Holiday Marina staff member sustained a small cut, and bystanders were checked for smoke inhalation but were unharmed.
