Authorities are investigating an incident where a 45-foot fisherman’s vessel sustained severe damage after catching fire at Road Reef Marina on Tortola early Thursday morning.
“The vessel was severely impacted to its interior, and it’s structure,” Deputy Fire Chief William Penn told BVI News.
He said five of his officers had responded to the scene after receiving reports of the fire around 3:32 am.
He said the vessel was unoccupied at the time.
The cause of the fire is unknown.
