DENISON, Texas -- Three vessels were pulled from a burning boathouse at a Lake Texoma marina on Wednesday.

The fire, at Grandpappy Point Marina, consumed Boathouse 34.

Multiple agencies responded to battle the blaze, including units from Denison, Preston, Pottsboro and Locust.

"We are attacking this fire from both sides of the marina," said Denison Fire-Rescue Chief Gregg Loyd. "They drug the boats out of the boathouse and beached them on an adjourning beach and so they're working the fire on the boats from that perspective."

No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

In July 2017, a massive fire at Highport Marina in Pottsboro destroyed an entire dock.
