Default ZT 280 on fire in pool 26

Got a bunch of messages that there was a boat on fire near Grafton. After seeing pics on Facebook, it appeared to be a ZT 280.

Anybody know who's it was and I hope they are all ok. There was nothing reported in the story on the news about any injuries so I am assuming all were ok.

Graphics look mid 90's in that photo and swim platform is molded. Did CM make a ZT let alone a molded platform in those years?

I have seen ZT models with those graphics. I remember looking at a red 97 280 zt for a friend that had them. As of 1997 NADA shows they produced the ZT240 and ZT280 which appears to be first year for them.

Could it be a 260 Persuader. From my phone it looks like a Persuader swim platform. Looks like a bad situation.
