A 30-foot houseboat caught on fire this morning and was burned down to the water line.

Patricia Olson, a resident of Poplar Point, made the 911 call after seeing the flames.

“That boat went up really fast,” Olson said

There was no one on board the houseboat at the time as the owner is apparently out of town.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
