A man narrowly escaped a fire that engulfed his sailboat early this morning at the Key West city mooring field. The fire department battled the flames for over an hour. A nearby liveaboard boater commented on how fast the response had been and how dangerous. The fire was so intense that the foot of the mast melted and for a moment appeared that it could fall down.
The vessel, "Summer Wind," belongs to Mr. Eric Julier. He said he had no idea what caused the fire.
