Welder's torch sparks fire
Welder sparks tug boat fire
By JAIME HERNANDEZ Staff Writer
ORMOND BEACH, Fla -- No one was injured in a fire that broke out Wednesday on a World War II-era tug boat being restored at a dock in the 2600 block of John Anderson Drive. The fire was reported to the Ormond Beach Fire Division at 1:12 p.m. and extinguished by 2 p.m.
Jack Gordon McCarthy, the tug's owner, said the 102-foot-long vessel has been moored at the dock on the Halifax River for four years to undergo restoration. Sparks from a welding torch ignited mattresses and life jackets in the forward hold. The Coast Guard and Ormond Beach fire officials are investigating.
