CLARE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Deliberately set. Firefighters in Farwell say that's the cause of a fire that destroyed a small boat in Clare County early Thursday morning.

It happened at Lake Thirteen just before 4 a.m. The Sheriff's Office said the boat was tied to the dock in the 100 block of Scott Drive.

The owner used a garden hose to douse most of the flames.

Arson is to blame, sheriff's investigators noted in a prepared release.

They found a red Ford F-150 parked nearby with graffiti spray painted on its side and on a nearby guardrail. Both may offer clues to finding a suspect in this crime.
