Fire at Ascot Waters destroys boat
A fire has destroyed a boat in Ascot Waters on Thursday morning.
Listener Kevin called 6PR Breakfast just before 6AM to notify Steve and Baz about the fire and said emergency services were still on their way. He did try to get close to the boat to check if people were on board, but a gate to the jetty was locked.
6PR Reporter, Simon Etheridge, later checked on the fire and told Steve and Baz emergency services were trying to get the fire under control.
Hear Kevin’s original call…
