The Porter Fire Departmentís Dive/Rescue Team conducted a fruitless search on Sunday for a boat on Lake Michigan reported to be on fire.

Fire Chief Lewis Craig told the Chesterton Tribune today that, at 12:49 p.m., divers from both the Porter and Portage fire departments launched rescue boats from the Portage Marina, after the U.S. Coast Guard received a report of a boat on fire approximately three miles out on the lake.

Diver searched for three hours without finding anything, Craig said.

The PFD cleared the scene at 3:42 p.m.
