Members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force Marine Department spray water on a boat which caught fire yesterday in the Ocho Rios bay. It is not clear what started the fire, however, the boat burst into flames as persons watched from the beach. A man who was on the vessel when the fire started was reportedly taken to hospital for treatment. The St Ann fireboat, which would have assisted in putting out the fire, has been out of service for more than a year now. During the last sitting of the St Ann Parish Council it was reported that the boat was being fixed. (PHOTOS: RENAE DIXON)
