The Cayman Islands Fire Service responded to a backyard boat fire in South Sound on Sunday afternoon.

The plume of smoke could be seen as far away as West Bay.

After a 911 call was made at 1:35 p.m. reporting a “structure fire” on Walkers Rd., two tankers and one rescue unit responded.

After the units arrived on the scene at 1:43 p.m., they discovered that two boats were on fire close to a shed. By 1:54 p.m. the fire was under control and by 2:05 p.m. it was fully extinguished.

No injuries were reported and the fire is currently under investigation.

The blaze caused Walkers Rd. to be closed for a short time in both directions near South Sound Rd.
