Fire boat assists in extinguishing vegetation fire on Daby Island

EUREKA, Ca. (KIEM) – A fire boat is used to put out a vegetation fire on Daby Island in Humboldt Bay.

Cal Fire and Humboldt Bay firefighters were alerted to the vegetation fire, just before 5:00PM on Friday evening.

Because the burning area wasn’t readily accessible by vehicles, the fire boat was launched.

The boat aided in controlling the fire within minutes of it’s start. The cause is unknown.
