JAMESTOWN, R.I. (WPRI) — A boat at Conanicut Marina in Jamestown was destroyed by fire late Saturday morning.

The U.S. Coast Guard at Station Castle Hill said a Jamestown fire boat was on the scene for about 45 minutes fighting the flames.
No one was onboard the boat when the fire started and no injuries were reported.
