AMERICAN FALLS — A fire destroyed a boat and dock at the marina here along the American Falls Reservoir.

There were no injuries as a result of the fire, which started around 3 p.m. Saturday in the boat’s engine, the Power County Sheriff’s Office said.

The fire quickly spread to the rest of the boat and the adjacent dock.

A witness dialed 911, and emergency units responded, but by the time they arrived the boat and dock were engulfed in flames.

The Pocatello Fire Department hazardous materials team was deployed to the scene to make sure there were no environmental hazards as a result of the fire.

Emergency units remained on the scene for about five hours before reopening the marina.

The name of the boat’s owner has not yet been released.

The Power County Sheriff’s Office said there is still one remaining dock at the marina for boaters.
