SEBRING - No one was injured Wednesday when fire damaged the interior of a boat manufacturing business, Sebring Assistant Fire Chief Robert Border said Thursday.

Border said the fire, which occurred around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, started after employees of Seahawk Boats, 523 Pear St., had already left.

The fire caused little damage to the actual building, he said. But it did damage two boat molds, Border added.

The cause of the fire is still being investigated, he said.

Seahawk Boats manufactures boats that are used for diving and commercial fishing, he said.
