Couple escape K&A canal boat blaze

A couple escaped from their blazing narrowboat near Temple Place on the Kennet & Avon Canal in Reading yesterday evening. 
Fire crews from Dee Road and Whitley Wood fire stations in Reading were called to the blaze along with the specialist water rescue team from Caversham Road at about 7pm. 
A couple in their 30s escaped unharmed from the boat that was extensively damaged in the blaze that is believed to have started in the engine room as they were mooring the boat.

The canal has remained closed in the area today while the cause of the fire is investigated.
