BY MARCY SHORTUSE - When Arturas Kaciucevicius, 23, of Lithuania got on a plane to come to the United States recently, he was prepared for a great adventure. A man needed a crew to help him get a sailboat to a Caribbean destination, and because he was a friend of Arturas' father he was quick to accept. He arrived, met with Piotras Dejevas, 54, of Lithuania and Paulius Guarauskas, 18, of Lithuania, another crew member, and they set out from Sarasota on Sunday.
At approximately 6:30 Thursday morning, August 22, the Boca Grande Fire Department responded to a house fire at 311 Pilot Point Lane in Boca Bay, the Talbot home.
After arriving on scene at 6:41 a.m. firefighters found a fully involved home. The home next door at 315 Pilot Point was also severely damaged.
The Coast Guard’s search for the owner of a 10-foot green Sun Dolphin Aruba II kayak has been suspended. The kayak found approximately six miles out in the Gulf from Boca Grande Pass on Thursday.
