A chain-reaction fire has destroyed five boats at a marina in southeast Michigan.

The Monroe News reports that the first boat caught fire at about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday and quickly spread to the other boats parked nearby on land at the Lake Pointe Marina in South Rockwood. It took five fire departments about half an hour to get the fires under control.

Officials believe the fire was caused by someone burning wood or trash near the boats in a pit enclosed by concrete barriers.

Rockwood Fire Chief Dan Mercure says Berlin Township is investigating the fire.
