Body

Three boats are destroyed after a fire at an Oak Island marina.

The fire broke out around 5:30 a.m. at the South Harbor Village Marina, on the eastern end of Oak Island.

One of the burned-out boats actually sank. No one was on board the boats when the fire broke out, and no one was hurt.

Oak Island Fire Chief, John House, said the cause is still under investigation…

That investigation is on hold until Friday, because one of the vessels was leaking diesel fuel into the water.

The names of the boats’ owners have not been released.
