The Leamington fire rescue boat towed a boat back to shore after smoke filled the vessels engine compartment.

It happened about 500ft off the Leamington Marina at 10am.

Three people on the boat, a man, woman, and child were fishing in Lake Erie when the blaze started.

They weren’t injured and the boat was able to be trailered out of the water. Damage appears to be minimal.
