A sailboat moored just north of the Coast Guard base on the Ashley River caught fire today. Smoke from the blaze could be seen past the jetties. There is no word yet whether anyone was on board at the time of the fire. Coast Guard is currently investigating the matter.
Update: I drove past the scene of the fire today, I saw the sailboat’s rail sticking out of the water. It’s safe to say, then, that the boat sank after catching ablaze. The Coast Guard is still investigating the incident.
