A boat fire on Lagoon Pond Wednesday afternoon saw an all-out response from firefighters and emergency personnel on both sides of the pond.
The call came in at around 2:25 p.m. from the owner-manager of Prime Marina, according to Tisbury police Sgt. Max Sherman, who responded to the scene.
Sergeant Sherman said it was believed that an employee from Prime had taken the boat, a 30-foot powerboat with two outboard motors, out on the pond for a test run when it caught fire. The operator was able to get off the boat without injury or further incident, Sergeant Sherman said, while Tisbury firefighters responded. Oak Bluffs also sent a fire rescue boat and Tisbury police were on the scene as well.
Lagoon Pond Road was closed in both directions from the post office to Skiff avenue during the response.
The fire was mostly out by a little after 3 p.m., Segreant Sherman said.
There were no other boats in the vicinity, but the fire sent up a huge plume of gray smoke as firefighters poured water on the blaze. Across the way, a ferry was in the slip in the Vineyard Haven harbor.
