GLOUCESTER POINT, Va. (WAVY) — Multiple fire agencies responded to a fire Thanksgiving night at a marina in the Gloucester Point area.

Officials with Abingdon Volunteer Fire and Rescue said on Facebook the fire was in a storage building at York River Yacht Haven.

The building was originally built as a horse stable, but was later converted to storage for the marina.

Crews were called to the marina around 10:40 p.m.

The first units arriving on scene saw fire visible through metal seams across the building. Officials said it appeared as though the fire had been burning for quite some time before it was reported.

Photos posted to the unit’s Facebook page showed a tick cloud of smoke surrounding the scene.

Officials said it took quite a while to extinguish the fire because of the building’s contents and layout. Firefighters remained on scene for over four hours, digging through debris and performing overhaul.
