Blair, Fort Calhoun, and Missouri Valley, Iowa, were called to a boat fire on the Missouri River around noon on Saturday.  The boat was fully engulfed in flames as fire fighters reached the area near the Rock Quarry near county road P 30.  Fort Calhoun and Blair fire fighters went into the river and extinguished the fire and pulled the boat to the Iowa side of the river.  No one was on-board the boat when rescue personnel arrived, and no one was injured.
