Report of a boat fire turned out to be untrue

Posted by wlpo on September 17, 2012

Not every fire call ends up being a fire.

The Ottawa Fire Department was called Sunday evening to the Shoreline Boat Club on the Illinois River for a house boat on fire.  The boat was said to be on an island only accessible by boat.  So crews got on a boat and when they reached Shoreline Island, they didn’t see a fire and were told the boat was actually on Bull’s Island.  When crews went there, the boat wasn’t actually on fire.  They did break out a window to make sure.

The whole ordeal last about an hour.
