Many emergency vehicles were seen racing along Kenaston Boulevard to follow the loud sound to the 300 block of Cadboro Rd.

Once on the scene, fire crews said they found a houseboat and trailer engulfed in flames.

The crew said the address did not have fire hydrants, so emergency personnel was forced to shuttle water with tankers.

There are no injuries reported and the cause of the fire is being investigated.
