Boat 'a total loss' after fire in Ladner Harbour

“It was a 38-foot fishing vessel on fire that was moored to a float,” said Wilson. “No other structures were involved. The boat is a total loss.

“We are still investigating, but it does not look suspicious and we don’t have a cause as of yet, but often boat owners leave heaters on these vessels, so that may have been a cause, but we just don’t know at this point. We seem to get a call like this almost every year.”

Delta police were called to provide assistance in the area, but the fire was extinguished prior to police arrival.
