Sport fishing boat catches fire in Falmouth

A 38-foot sport fishing boat was destroyed in a fire on Sunday night in Falmouth, fire officials said.

Falmouth Fire Captain Bruce Girouard said the call came in around 9 p.m. for a blaze at a marina at 227 Clinton Ave.

The boat — named “My Brother” — was a total loss, and other boats nearby sustained radiant heat damage, Girouard said. The dock also caught fire and sustained moderate damage, he said.


Girouard said firefighters had the fire under control by 9:30 p.m., and there were no injuries.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, he said.
