Unalaska's Department of Public Safety (DPS) is still investigating a fire that burned a boat to its waterline in Captains Bay last weekend.

According to DPS press release, a concerned citizen told officers on Aug. 20 that the M/V Rebecca was burning at the head of Captains Bay while tied to another boat, the vessel Grave Robber.


A vessel caught fire in Unalaska waters last weekend.

The incident is still under investigation, but City Manager Dave Martinson said efforts are already underway to address the damaged boat.

"On Saturday, the vessel Rebecca was found burning at the end of Captains Bay," he said. "There was a potential hazard, so the Department of Public Safety has worked with Resolve Marine Group and the U.S. Coast Guard. We're going to execute a $30,000 contract to remove it."
