Boat fire at Victoria harbour

A sailboat went up in flames Wednesday, in Victoria's Inner Harbour.

The highly public blaze was visible from around the downtown waterfront and sent a plume of black smoke towering over the capital city.

A fire boat was attacking the blaze over the lunch hour, in the Fisherman's Wharf area of the harbour.

The incident closed a nearby fuel dock.
