BELMAR, N.J. (AP) - Belmar officials say more than a dozen boats have been damaged in a fire at a marina.

No injuries were reported and no buildings were damaged in the blaze, which apparently broke out around 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Seaport Inlet Marina in the Monmouth County community. It was brought under control about 40 minutes later.

Firefighters from Belmar and several nearby towns fought the blaze, which produced clouds of thick, black smoke that were visible from a distance.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
