The first thing I would do would be to get my boat out of dodge, no matter how far away I was docked, and how small the fire was to start. Marina fires spread like crazy once dock lines burn through and flaming hulks begin to drift around.

Seems like everybody was too damn busy taking pictures and not thinking ahead.

Thanks for posting. Scary how fast that spread

Lots more video on YouTube actually:

And quite a few news articles. Five boats around 20m destroyed.
