Carport and boat destroyed by fire, Tumby Bay

At around 11.42 this morning CFS crews were alerted to a boat on fire underneath a carport.  

Two CFS fire trucks and eight volunteer firefighters attended and upon arrival found the boat fully engulfed in fire which had also spread to the carport.

There were no injuries, however the boat and carport were destroyed, fortunately due to the quick actions from fire crews they were able to stop the fire spreading to the house.

Estimated damages is estimated to be between $50,000 and $60,000. Cause of the fire is undetermined at this stage but it is believed not to be suspicious.
