Fire guts sailboat on Mission Bay

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – An investigation was under way Monday into what sparked a fire aboard a 25-foot sailboat at Driscoll’s Marina in Mission Bay.

The noninjury fire in the vicinity of 1500 block of Quivera Road was reported at 7:16 p.m. Sunday, according to San Diego fire-rescue spokesman Lee Swanson.

A San Diego city lifeguard’s fire boat got in the water and quickly knocked flames down using foam, he said in a statement, adding that the fire was fully out about 20 minutes after it was reported.

“The sailboat is a complete loss,” Swanson said. “There is minor heat damage to a neighboring boat.”
