Boat destroyed by fire in front yard
A BOAT has been destroyed after it was lit on fire in the front yard of a northern Gold Coast house last night.
Firefighters were called to Troy Knight Drive and Cunningham Drive in Pimpama about 9.30pm.
Two crews attended and on arrival found a boat, roughly 4m in length, was up in flames.
A Queensland Fire and Emergency Service spokesman said it is believed the occupants had worked to extinguish the fire before firefighters arrived.
It took firefighters a few minutes to extinguish the flaming boat before staying on scene dampening the area for just short of an hour.
It was understood the boat was parked on a trailer out the front of a home.
Police are treating the incident as suspicious and will be investigating.
