Fire destroys 5 fishing boats in Magdalen Islands, Quebec.

Five fishing boats were completely destroyed in a fire at the Magdalen Islands’ Grande-Entrée wharf Sunday morning. The fire department received a call around 4:20 a.m. about burning boats at the Magdalen Islands’ largest fishermen wharf. The fires were under control as of 7:30 a.m., though three boats sank, two others were burned to a crisp and others suffered minor damage, said Antonin Valiquette, the mayor of the Magdalen Islands.  No one was injured. Valiquette says all evidence points to the fire being accidental. It appears to have started in one boat and been pushed onto other boats by the wind. more, >>CLICK TO READ<< 13:23
