CLEVELAND – Cleveland fire crews were called out to Edgewater Yacht Club Saturday evening when a 27-foot sailing there caught on fire.
The Fire Boat Anthony J Celebrezze, along with Cleveland Engine Company 21, assisted in putting the fire out. The Coast Guard was called in to help establish a safety zone around the area while fire crews worked.
No one was injured, but the boat, which was estimated to be worth $30,000, was destroyed and eventually sunk.
The cause is believed to be accidental, as the boat’s owner was working on an electrical issue on the boat before the fire began.
