Couple puts out boat fire with extinguisher

Waldport, OR – An Oregon couple was waiting at the Port of Alsea to pick up food when they noticed smoke beginning to billow from a docked boat. The couple ran to the boat and discovered that the fire was spreading from a battery located on a commercial boat. Then after successfully searching the surrounding boats for a portable fire extinguisher, they used it to put out the flames before the fire department could arrive. There were no reported injuries from the fire, though the couple told reporters that their food was cold by the time they picked it up.
