Police investigating suspicious boat fire in Gold Coast driveway

IT’S understood as many as three teenagers could be responsible for a boat fire on the northern Gold Coast.

Around five neighbours came to the rescue of the blaze with hoses, after the vessel exploded in the driveway of a Pimpama property around 9.30 last night.

Two fire fighter crews attended, though the flames were reportedly out when they arrived.


They stayed on scene to dampen the area for around an hour.

Police are now investigating, confirming they’re treating the incident as suspicious.

Witnesses say they saw three people in black hoodies running from the scene shortly after the incident.

It’s understood the daughter of the boat owners knows all three of the culprits.
