Default Boat fire at Snyder Launch

Anglers in the Tri-Cities, there is a boat currently on fire at the Snyder launch, fire crews were called but the boat was totally engulfed and making popping noises, couldn't tell but it looked like the dock might be comprised as well. Looks like everyone got off the boat and everyone was safe.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll take a look after work and see what shape it's in.

Edit:
Saw the article. I'll go see if the launch is still open or if the launch and dock are closed:

Holy cow! That's terrible. I don't know if it's the same boat but for many years I've seen Greg running a 19' Spectrum I/O. Sorry to see that.

Ramps are open. One dock is closed.

Whoops, just noticed my typo, I meant to say 19'. Pretty sure his Spectrum was 19 not 18, but I see the newspaper listed it at 18. Either way, sad deal but glad nobody was hurt.

There was a crew from the City of Richland (nice priorities!!!) there when I took out at 11:30am. It looked like they'd have the damaged ramp and dock fixed up today.
