Several small propane tanks exploded which helped fuel the fire. Relief valves on two larger propane tanks relieved. Such relief valves are designed to prevent tanks when heated from building two much pressure and exploding.

The marina was closed at the time of the fire. Floating cabins next to the marina were evacuated. One Jet Ski and a boat were damaged in the fire. There were no injuries. The cause of the fire is possibly of an electrical origin.
