"It's not every day you see a big fire on a boat like that," said Hudson resident Sébastien Bertrand, who snapped this picture September 15 when his eye was drawn to the smoke on the water on his way home from running errands in Vaudreuil-Dorion. "Luckily it looked like they had help right away from emergency services."
The fire reportedly occurred following a mishap with a heating appliance aboard the sailboat which suffered extensive damage. The two men on board jumped into the Baie de Vaudreuil to escape the flames. One of the two males aboard suffered burns to the hands and face.
