Two boats caught fire in the harbour last night with fire crew attending at 2:00 this morning. Both were moored on the south pontoon (nearest the sailing club) and, by the looks of it, they are total right offs according to a gurnite who has sent in this information. The south pontoon was closed by police tape and the boats will be inspected by a forensic expert today to determine if the fire was started by an electrical fault or whether arson was involved.
