Default Huge House Boat Fire on LKN

This is West Port Marina and where I dry rack store. The boat that burst into flames is a charter type boat where they take tours and or event groups around the lake - very similar to a Cumberland type house boat.

Here is the link to Channel 9 news:

I just talked to Sea Tow and they aren't letting anyone down the cove to the marina. It seems one person is missing. Where the boat is in flames is right beside the gas dock and where you would stage your boat before it gets picked up.
