News

The Honolulu Fire Department, and U.S. Coast Guard responded to a two-alarm boat fire in Honolulu Harbor. The St. Peter, a 40-foot-boat, was covered with thick black smoke when units arrived.

According to the Coast Guard, Customs and Border Protection personnel were conducting a routine inspection of the vessel and asked the crew to assemble on the pier. A stove burner was reportedly left on in the galley, presumably causing the fire.

The call came in at 1:30 p.m. and was deemed under control at 2:49 p.m. The cause of the fire is under investigation. There have been no reports of pollution or injuries.
