The Victoria Fire Department responded to the fire at the marina behind the CoastHarbourside Hotel around 1 a.m. to find a vessel fully engulfed in flames.

A crew manning the fire boat managed to quickly put out the flames using a deck gun, while ground crew shot water from the driveway of the hotel.

No one was aboard the boat at the time.

The cause of the fire has not been revealed and there were no injuries were reported.
