PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. -- A dog was killed in a boat fire Thursday in the Intracoastal Waterway in Clearwater.

Officials say the boat was owned by William Campbell, and Oscar Lozada lived on the vessel. The dog that was killed also lived on the boat.

Clearwater Fire Rescue said that the boat caught fire then broke free from its slip in a post on Twitter.

CFR was assisted by the U.S. Coast Guard and the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.

The fire scorched the dock but did not cause any injuries.

The boat was towed closer to land so firefighters could fully extinguish the hot spots.

CFR has not released details on what caused the fire.

The fire remains under investigation.
