Austin fire officials believe that yesterday's boat fires on Lady Bird Lake were intentionally set.

Investigators don't know the specific cause of the fire that destroyed three boats--including a two-story party barge--and part of a dock near the Ann Richards Congress Avenue Bridge just after 2:00 on Christmas Day afternoon. They do say that someone was seen running from the area about the same time the fire broke out.
