Golf carts of fire

-A A +A

Shortly after 10 p.m. Monday Aug. 21, a golf cart across from the Cedar Key City Park was found to be on fire. While passing good Samaritans assisted the golf cart owner, George Oakley, someone called 911. The cart was pushed out into the street to remove it from nearby structures and vehicles. Cedar Key Fire Rescue responded quickly, extinguished the fire and towed the cart away. No one was injured during the incident. Oakley is owner of Gulf Kart Company of Cedar Key, a golf cart rental company. Ironically, Oakley had recently spoken out at the Cedar Key City Commission meeting about the safety of rental golf carts.
