Three boats caught fire at Muara Angke Pier in Penjaringan, North Jakarta, on Saturday evening, but no fatalities were reported in the incident.

'€œWe think the fire started at around 7:20 p.m. and was caused by a short circuit in the engine of one of the boats,'€ head of operational affairs at the North Jakarta Fire and Natural Disaster Agency, Muchtar Zakaria, said on Saturday.

He said the agency'€™s officers pulled the boat 3 kilometers from the pier to prevent the fire from spreading to other boats.

'€œWe are still verifying the owners of the boats and investigating the incident,'€ Muchtar said as quoted by tribunnews.com.
