A boat caught fire on Nacimiento Lake on Friday afternoon, according to a Cal Fire spokesperson.

Around 12:47 p.m., Cal Fire received a call that a 22-foot-long boat was on fire at the lake.

The burning boat was drifting toward a cove and didn't endanger anyone or any wildland, Cal Fire said. However, the boat sustained more than $10,000 worth of damage.

No one was aboard the boat when firefighters arrived, though several people were on shore. It is unclear who owns the boat, Cal Fire said.

The cause of the fire is not yet known, Cal Fire said, and rangers are investigating the incident.
