Duck Boat tours suspended in London after blaze
LONDON (AP) - September 30, 2013 (WPVI) -- A British tour boat company has suspended its boat trips on the River Thames after a dangerous fire onboard one of its vessels forced the rescue of some 30 people.
London Duck Boat Tour said Monday its river operations will be halted until the cause of the fire has been established. It will be offering only land-based tours.
Passengers abandoned the amphibious "duck boat" after it was nearly engulfed by flames and heavy smoke and had to be rescued from the river Saturday. Three people were treated at a hospital for smoke inhalation.
The company says it is cooperating with investigators.
