Two Boats Destroyed In Washington State Marina

VASHON, Wash. (AP) – Two boats were destroyed after an explosion led to a large fire at a marina on Vashon Island Monday morning.

KOMO reports the fire broke out at Quartermaster Marina just after 4 a.m. and video from a witness showed flames shooting several feet in the sky.

Firefighters had to deal with icy piers to get to the scene but once they arrived they found two boats burning at the marina, according to Vashon Island Fire & Rescue.

Some firefighters were able to knock down the flames while others pushed nearby boats out away from danger, but neither fire was doused until the boats eventually sank.

No one was on board either boat when the fire broke out and no injuries were reported.
