Firefighters Knock Down Houseboat Blaze

Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve

National Park News

A private 54-foot houseboat at Wahweap Marina caught fire early on the morning of October 20th. Park maintenance worker Scott Dolinar discovered and reported the fire just before 6 a.m. Chad Hunter was the first NPS responder to arrive and served as the incident commander. NPS firefighters responded with the park’s fireboat and were joined by units from the Page Fire Department. The fire was declared out about 90 minutes later. The houseboat was unoccupied and no injuries were reported. The quick response time to the fire prevented damage to the dock and other boats in the marina. Park concessioner Aramark is assisting with cleanup. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
