A fire at a marina in Mystic, Conn., destroyed two buildings and a boat and residents of the neighborhood fled their homes, according to local reports.
Firefighters from several area departments descended on Seaport Marine in Mystic to battle the blaze late Sunday evening.
Mystic Fire Chief Anthony Manfredi Jr told Fox News the blaze was made more dangerous by strong southerly winds that fanned the flames towards firefighters and nearby residences, which chased some residents worried about their homes.
A local business owner told Fox61 that his employees were in the area when the fire broke out and described it as “hell”.
The Independent has contacted the Mystic Fire Department for comment.
