In 1964, Alton had a "Fire Duck". It did not move nearly as fast as today's fire boats.

The boats were smaller back in '64. I see a few 40HP Evinrudes on the boats. Doesn't the burnt boat look like the BAT BOAT?

I remember that boat fire. They put the boat on display near the bandstand. Seems the boat's owner had a leak in the gas tank and had just filled up next... a passenger lit a cigarette and the result is in this picture. I remember that every one jumped overboard and no one was seriously hurt.
