    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.
