SACRAMENTO — Fire officials are investigating a blaze that destroyed more than a dozen boats at a Sacramento County marina.

The flames were reported early Monday near the community of Walnut Grove in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta.

Officials say nobody was hurt in the fast-moving fire that gutted an estimated 14 boats, some of them houseboats as long as 65 feet. Propane tanks exploded and many of the covered slips collapsed under the intense heat.

The Sacramento Bee says ( many of the boat owners live out of town and learned of the fire when they saw televised images of flames devouring their boats or got phone calls from friends.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
