Authorities are investigating the cause of a Saturday fire that destroyed a boat docked behind a Freeport home, an official said.
The Freeport Fire Department received a call around 5:25 p.m. Saturday about a boat in flames behind a home on Arthur Street, said the agency’s executive director, Ray Maguire.
When firefighters arrived, Maguire said, they found the 32-foot Carver “well-involved.”
“It appears to have started on top of the flying bridge,” Maguire said of the fire, which was brought under control “within a half-hour.”
Maguire said the boat belongs to the homeowner.
There were no injuries.
The Nassau County fire marshal’s office is trying to determine the cause of the blaze, Maguire said.
