EDGEWATER, Md. (WUSA9) -- Anne Arundel County firefighters battled an early morning blaze that consumed three large boats docked at Oak Grove Marina in Edgewater.

According to officials, the fire was first reported in the 2800 block of Solomons Island Road around 4:40 a.m. Once crews arrived on the scene they found three large pleasure crafts, approximately 30 to 42 feet in length, engulfed in flames. Firefighters were able to bring the flames under control around 5:30 a.m.

The fire heavily damaged all three boats, and they are considered totalled, according to Anne Arundel Fire officials. A portion of the pier was also burned. 

No injuries were reported.

One fire boat remained at the scene after most crews left, say fire officials. The Maryland Department of the Environment is on the scene for fuel spilled from the boats.There is not estimated time for how long crews will remain there.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
