A 40-foot cabin cruiser was completely destroyed Wednesday, when it caught fire, while berthed at the Anchorage Marina in Canton. Multiple fire units responded at 3:40 p.m. to the pier in the 2500 block of Boston Street, city fire officials said.

Crews isolated the boat in the water to prevent the fire from jumping to other nearby boats and brought the blaze under control by 4:05 p.m., said Chief Kevin Cartwright, a fire spokesman.

No firefighter was injured. No one was on the boat at the time and no other boats at the marina were damaged, officials said.
