NORTHWEST ARKANSAS (KFTA) – The Coast Guard Auxiliary wants to remind boaters that fires are a significant threat out on the water.

It says to run your engine compartment blowers for at least four minutes before starting the motor.

Make sure fire extinguishers are the proper size for the boat.

Always wear your life vests since engine fires will often begin with an explosion which could eject riders into the water unexpectedly.
