Smoke seen coming from boat outside harbour

A BOAT was believed to have been on fire outside the Rosslyn Bay Harbour at Yeppoon this afternoon just after 2pm.

Smoke was spotted coming from the engine house of a 35-foot fibreglass motorised yacht.

Three fireys and one police officer loaded on the Yeppoon Coastguard boat with water pumps.

Upon arrival there was no flames.

Police confirmed there were two people on board the yacht who were both accounted for and not injured.

The boat made it back the harbour on it's own power.
