A boat caught fire at the state line launch ramp on Wednesday afternoon.

Nobody was injured, but the boat was deemed a total loss, despite the National Park Services fire suppression efforts.

According to Katie Wood with the National Park Service, the boater had just gotten underway and turned on the blower before venting the bilge.  The resulting spark caused spontaneous combustion in the compartment, setting the boat ablaze.

The National Park Service wants to remind everyone to vent their bilge before turning on the power to anything on the boat.  Not only could it save your life, but it could also save your boat.
