Fire Damages Half Dozen Boats At Ventura Boatyard

Posted on Wednesday, July 20, 2011 11:00am


Firefighters are trying to determine the cause of a Tuesday night fire which damaged a half dozen boats at a Ventura boatyard.

The blaze was discovered at around 8 p.m. at Pacific Marine Repair & Boatyard, on the 2800 block of Palma Drive.  Flames were visible throughout the area.

Firefighters had to use bolt cutters to get access to the fenced in boatyard, because no one was there at the time.  Four boats were heavily damaged, and two suffered minor damage, with the total loss estimated at around $70,000.
