A houseboat about 40 feet in length and two small electric tour boats burned on Monday (May 28) at Bahia Mar Marina in Fort Lauderdale, according to Dockmaster Charles Walker. Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue responded to the 6 a.m. call. No one was injured in the incident.

The 46-foot houseboat Luxuria sustained heat damage as the wind blew in its direction, said Bob Rowe, CEO of Global Boatworks Holdings, which owns Luxuria. He said the houseboat was recently used in the Waterway Soiree fundraiser. The extent of the damage is unknown.

Gondolas West owns the electric boats. The company offers tours on the Intracoastal Waterway in the area. The nearby Bluefoot Pirate Adventure boat was not damaged, according to Jess Seevers, customer service manager with the company.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
