3 boats go up in flames in Weehawken
Officials say fire destroyed two boats and damaged a third at the Lincoln Harbor Marina in Weehawken Tuesday.
According to officials, a fire broke out on a houseboat at around 7:30 a.m. and then spread to the other vessels. About 50 firefighters and two fireboats battled the blazes.
Officials say four firefighters were injured by the fires. It was initially believed that a doctor may have been on one of the boats, but the Weehawken deputy police chief says the man was working when the fire started.
The Hudson County Prosecutor's Office, the U.S. Coast Guard, Weehawken police and state police are investigating the fires.
