Fire Destroys Sale Creek Boat

Posted: Updated:

SALE CREEK (WRCB) -- A boater's afternoon on the lake in Sale Creek came to an abrupt end when his boat caught fire.

Andreas Montgomery noticed smoke coming from the console of his boat then he saw the flames.

He couldn't put the fire out so he jumped into the water.

Another boater pulled him out of the water and they called 9-1-1.

The boat is a total loss. It sank to the bottom of the lake as it was being towed to shore.
