The Plymouth sustained about $1,500 damage. The driver of the BMW was cited for following too closely. No one was injured.


The Coast Guard cutter Naushon and a crew from Station Juneau responded to a citizens' band radio conversation about a boat fire shortly before 9 p.m. Friday in Spasski Bay near Hoonah. The fire occurred on an unnamed, 28-foot pleasure boat with five people aboard 26 miles west of Juneau. When rescuers arrived, they found the boat was still ablaze. The unidentified occupants abandoned ship and boarded another pleasure boat, Real Fast. An emergency medical technician from the Naushon treated one person, who suffered a minor ankle injury. The owner of the charred boat intended to have it towed to Auke Bay, but the Auke Bay harbormaster said it had not arrived there yet.
