Saw the fire from nine mile must of burned for about a half hour. Just saw the news on T.V. it was a Trojan boat not sure on the size, looked about 32 ish . I'm not sure of the name of the boat but I thought I heard on the ship to shore the golden odessey .
I went thru the channel about 5 minutes before the fire, looked back and saw all the black smoke. Heard on the radio the flames where about 30 feet high, burning out of the engine hold. 8-10 boat where around the fire it trying to assist, not sure if they put it out or just let it burn out, fire lasted about 15 minutes. People were in the water but I believe all of them ended up in the water and pulled onto other boats OK

You must have been anchored near me.....Saw that, too. Don't think that was related to the fire, though. Too far apart. The news said there was something suspicious about that boat fire.....
Saw the smoke from muscamoot, could tell it was about the mouth of the middle channel, black smoke... figured it was a boat burning. Then saw the tow boats there upon leaving the moot, and on the news at 10pm.
