One 45′ boat was reported to have been partially sunk with its bow in the water. Multiple land units and multiple fire boats are working on the scene.

Witnesses at the scene are reporting that 3 large boats have been destroyed and portions of the pier.  Developing.

Oak Grove Marina was the site of a boat explosion on Memorial Day Weekend.
