While this fire has caused significant damage to the Long Beach boat rental business, it serves as a reminder of the importance of fire safety measures and the need for regular inspections and maintenance of boats. The boat rental company is optimistic about its ability to rebuild and reopen, and boaters in the area can continue to enjoy this beloved pastime with safety as their top priority.
