    Fire

    GRAND RIVERS, Ky. (KFVS) - At approximately 3:00 a.m. on Sunday July 12 a fire broke out on Pier 11 at Green Turtle Bay Marina and Resort.

    It was proceeded earlier by an electrical storm which occurred around 2:30 a.m.

    The fire was first reported to management by a boater on an adjoining dock.

    By 3:30 a.m. fire fighters from Livingston and Marshall Counties were engaged in attempts to contain the fire utilizing fire boats and land-based equipment.

    The entire pier and many of the boats located on the dock were destroyed by the fire.

    Another heavy rainstorm at 4:00 a.m. helped the firefighters prevent the fire’s spread to other docks in the harbor.

    At this point there are no known personal injuries nor casualties.

    No. I live about 40 miles from there. It is a First Class marina and resort on Lake Barkleys northern end.
