An explosion at a Miami marina started a fire that burned one boat and charred another Tuesday afternoon.

There were no injuries.

Miami Fire Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll says firefighters arrived at C&F Marine, 2151 NW 12th St., around 1:30 p.m. after reports of an explosion. They found a 24-foot-boat on the water covered in flames and a docked 50-foot tour boat burning, too. After 30 minutes, the fire was under control, but it already scorched the 24-foot boat. The 50-foot boat took smoke damage.

The cause of the explosion and fire is under investigation.
