A sailboat docked on Mission Bay caught fire for unknown reasons Wednesday, sending a plume of thick black smoke over the manmade harbor but causing no injuries.
The blaze erupted at a marina at Campland on the Bay shortly after 12:30 p.m., the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department reported.
Staffers at the RV park/campground in the 2200 block of Pacific Beach Drive were able to extinguish the flames aboard the 22-foot sloop prior to the arrival of firefighters, according to SDFRD public affairs.
The cause of the blaze, which resulted in no pollution problems in the harbor, remained under investigation.
