A crew responded and found a fully involved cabin cruiser boat. The report said firefighters stretched a bumper line and suppressed the fire.

Officials confirmed no one was inside the boat during the fire, and no nearby vehicles or buildings sustained damage.

The cause of the fire is still unknown.
