Officials are investigating a blaze that ripped through a Massachusetts marina Saturday night, destroying at least a dozen boats.

The fire at The Admiral's Hill Marina in
Chelsea caused an estimated $2 million in damage, according to a report in the Boston Globe. The boats destroyed ranged from 27 to 51 feet. They were among 120 that were drydocked at the marina for the winter.


At least three other boats also were damaged in the blaze. No one was injured.


Chelsea Fire Department Capt. John O'Driscoll told the Globe the fire could have been an accident - sparked by a cigarette tossed by a passerby or by improperly stored chemicals.


The investigation could take months, he told the Globe.
