A 40-foot cabin cruiser caught fire in the Anchorage Marina in Canton Wednesday afternoon, bringing multiple fire units to the pier where it was docked, city fire officials said.

Units responded to the marina in the 2500 block of Boston Street, which has slips for purchase and rent, about 3:40 p.m. and isolated the boat in the water to prevent the fire from jumping to other boats nearby, said Chief Kevin Cartwright, a fire spokesman.

The fire was brought under control about 4:05 p.m., Cartwright said.

No one was reported to be on the boat at the time of the fire and there were no injuries, Cartwright said.

Cartwright said he was not aware of the extent of the damage to the boat.
