Fire destroys old Chris Craft

ADVERTISEMENT

A fire possibly sparked by an electrical malfunction destroyed a 57-foot boat docked on San Diego’s Harbor Island in mid-December.



According to local fire officials, workers were servicing a generator and other power equipment aboard the 1963 Chris-Craft Constellation at Sunroad Resort Marina when the fire broke out about 12:30 p.m.



The blaze appears to have originated in the engine room. The cause was under investigation, but the boat had just taken part in a local boat parade. City officials told local press that its lights had been left on overnight.
