A fire at a marina on Center Hill Lake Tuesday morning has destroyed a dozen boats and damaged close to another dozen more. The blaze broke out at the Hidden Harbor Marina in DeKalb County.
DeKalb County Fire Chief Donny Green said it was a good outcome, considering there were about 300 boats in the slips at the marina. The initial damage estimate is about a half a millions dollars.
In January of 2004, a blaze broke out at the Center Hill Lake Marina. The quick burning fire quickly spread from boat to boat, causing more than $3 million in damage. In the end, more than a dozen houseboats were destroyed.
