Boat blaze at Conneaut Lake

Submitted Mon, 06/11/2012 - 7:52am by Andy Alm

A huge plume of thick, black smoke, rising up above Fireman’s Beach managed to temporarily capture the attention of hundreds of beach-goers, fishermen, and boaters on an otherwise pleasant Sunday afternoon on Conneaut Lake. 

A docked powerboat malfunctioned and caught fire, keeping firefighters from Conneaut Lake and Conneaut Lake Park volunteer fire departments busy for about 15 minutes.  There were no injuries, but firefighters say the boat was a total loss.
