VIDEO: Fire destroys two boats docked in Barnegat

BARNEGAT -

A late night marina fire destroyed two boats docked in Barnegat.

The fire is believed to have started in a private boat at the neighbor’s house next door.

In the video provided by the owner of Toni G’s Marina on East Bay Avenue, flames can be seen consuming the two boats.

Only one of the boats was a client of Toni G’s.

The marina owners were concerned they’d lose not just their boats, but their house.

“The wind was blowing quite strong and even inside the house it started smelling like chemicals and fire, so we closed all the windows up and we got out,” says Toni Gleason.

Fortunately, there were no injuries to report.

Toni G and her family are back in their home without issue.
