The storm which tore through City Island today brought with it lots of lightning which struck a boat, causing a fire at the Morris Yacht and Beach Club on City Island this afternoon.

According to sources, FDNY crews responded after black smoke was sen coming from the boat.
Emergency crews responded in force, with multiple trucks, as well as police and fire boats.

No injuries have been reported, and fortunately that blaze did not spread as the boat was anchored offshore when the fire broke out.

you realize that the boat pictured is not the boat that was on fire at Morris YC, right?
