MANDAN -- A reward has been offered in what is suspected to be arson after a winterized, shrink-wrapped boat was destroyed in a suspicious fire in Mandan.

Mandan police responded at 12:30 a.m. Friday  to the parking lot behind Mandan Chiropractic Clinic to find a Four Winns recreational boat on fire, Lt. Patrick Haug said

The fire was deemed suspicious because the boat had been sitting for several months prior to the incident, said Mandan Fire Department battalion chief Mitch Bitz.

The boat’s owners are Martina and Erik Isaacson, who also own the chiropractic practice. Martina Isaacson estimates that the damage totaled about $24,000, including the boat, trailer and accessories. She expects that a new boat would cost the family close to $40,000.

Martina Isaacson said she is heartbroken over the loss, calling it a “senseless crime.” She said she plans to pull the burned shell of the boat to the front of the building and offer a $1,000 reward to anyone who can help find the perpetrator.
