Canebrake boathouse catches fire

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A fire at Canebrake in Oak Grove destroyed a boat house and slightly damaged another Sunday morning.

The fire broke out around 9:00a.m. behind a home on Chandelier Drive.

A boat moored to the boat house also caught fire, broke loose from its mooring and drifted into another boat house nearby, setting it on fire. 

The homeowner was able to put it out with a garden hose. Lamar firefighters borrowed a boat from a canebrake resident to fight the fire from the lake.
