Anderson County, S.C. (WPDE) — A huge fire destroyed several boats at the Portman Marina on Lake Hartwell in Anderson County.
Photos show many boats and several marina buildings on fire as of around 12:30 p.m.
Greg Shore, an owner of Medshore Ambulance Service, told The Anderson Independent Mail that a friend's generator backfired and caught his boat on fire. His since his boat was in the middle of the other boats so the fire spread quickly.
Fire crews are responding.
