PORT COQUITLAM (NEWS 1130) – Smoke was seen billowing from a boat burning near the west end of the Pitt River Bridge this morning.
“There’s a small marina — maybe enough for 20 boats — and one of these boats at the very end of the marina is fully engulfed in flames,” said Darren Grieve in the NEWS 1130 Air Patrol.
“There are other boats very close to it,” he added.
