Hi gang, Rick here from Used Pontoon Boats. State police in LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa. are investigating the burning of two boats in Drumore Township early Wednesday morning.
Although state police are involved, the fire had not been labeled "suspicious" as of Thursday evening.
"At this time, the cause of the fire is unknown and remains under investigation," state police stated in a news release Thursday.
At 1:13 a.m. Wednesday, firefighters from Robert Fulton Fire Company responded to a fire on Ford Lane in Drumore Township.
Upon arrival, crews found a 1988 Hurricane boat, owned by Joseph Dynda of Reading, engulfed in flames under a carport.
Flames from the Hurricane were spreading to a 1990 Procraft pontoon boat, owned by William Keesee of Drumore, police reported.
Robert Fulton fire Chief Ray Glick said firefighters quickly extinguished the fire. The Hurricane was destroyed, he said, but the Procraft was saved. Total damages were estimated at $6,000.
According to Glick, the area where the two boats were parked is a community area where residents who live on Ford Lane keep boats, vehicles and other equipment.
