Many boats housed in a storage facility at a Cicero, Ind., dealership were destroyed in a fire Monday morning. The fire reportedly started in a boat at Portside Marine around 9:30 a.m. yesterday.

According to WRTV in Indianapolis, the Sheridan Fire Department chief said the original call came in as a single boat fire, but quickly escalated. More than 60 firefighters responded from multiple stations to put out the fire and keep it from spreading to nearby homes.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
