Peoria fire crews put out a boat fire at Lake Pleasant early Sunday morning.

According to fire officials, a fire at Lake Pleasant's Pleasant Harbor Marina was reported before 6 a.m. Flames had erupted aboard a 30-foot boat at the dock.

Fortunately, no one was on the boat at the time and crews were able to extinguish a majority of fire before it spread to other boats.

Officials say they untied the burning boat and a responding fireboat put out the flames.

There is no word on what caused the boat to catch fire.
