Fire Destroys St. George Boat Shop 

Fire fighters from several towns battled a boat shop fire at Clark Island Boatworks in St. George Wednesday night.

Crews were called to the business around 8 p.m. Wednesday.

We’re told the owner’s son lives on the property and heard the sounds of popping.

Two boats were inside the shop at the time. They were destroyed.

Fire fighters say all of the fiberglass and resin made it difficult to battle the flames and they were unable to save the shop.

They cleared around 3 a.m. Thursday.

The Fire Marshal’s office has been called in to try and figure out a cause.
