Fire Ruins A Dozen Boats In Storage At New Jersey Marina

 Thursday, February 16, 2017


A raging fire tore through numerous boats at a marina in New Jersey Tuesday. The boats caught fire at the dry dock of the Seaport Inlet Marina on 5th Avenue in Belmar. It took firefighters several hours to get the 3-alarm blaze under control, and thick, black smoke could be seen for miles. Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty said at least 12 boats were destroyed in the fire.
"The source of the fire is still under investigation," said Doherty. "Even right now while it’s under control there are parts of the fire that are still stubborn. It’s a mixture of plastics in the boat, and fuel that’s still in the boat that’s leading to this continuing fire."
