Boat engulfed in flames

A boat is being closely watched by security, after it burst into flames Saturday night in Nanaimo. 

On Oct. 4 at about 9:30 p.m. fire crews were called to Stones Marina after a 40-foot pleasure craft burst into flames. 

Firefighters used a ladder truck to extinguish the blaze, which engulfed the boat that was under renovation when it caught fire.  

For just over an hour Miller's Pub was evacuated as a necessary precaution. 

Officials say there’s nothing to suggest the fire is suspicious at this time.

Inspectors will look into the cause of the blaze on Monday.
