Sailboat owner trying to save it from fire

A thick cloud of smoke filled the air over Victoria’s Gorge Waterway Monday afternoon after a boat burst into flames near the Selkirk Trestle.

Victoria firefighters responded to the call just after 12:30 p.m. The occupant of the vessel made it safely off the boat, and the Victoria Fire Department extinguished the fire.

 

It is unknown if there were any hazardous materials on board the boat. Out of precaution, the Canadian Coast Guard placed a boom around the vessel.

 

One person is being treated for smoke inhalation. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.

 

A video shows a man jumping on-board a nearby sailboat in an attempt to save it from the fire.

The only things I keep up are washing my face, applying sun protection and brushing my teeth. My hair gets held together with a bandana every day, that has to do. I even ate...
