A fire severely damaged a home in Coconut Creek on Monday night, officials said.
The fire, in the 5800 block of Northwest 42nd Lane, damaged the single-family home and destroyed a Triton 20-foot boat in the garage, resident Jim Finley said.
Finley and his wife Cindy were home at the time of the fire. They were not injured.
“I was taking a nap in the chair. She was cleaning up some of the stuff in the house,” Finley said. “My neighbor came banging on door. When someone bangs on my door, I don’t answer it. I go look out the window first. … I saw the neighbor running across the street so I thought something was wrong at his house.”
