“There was no extension found inside the building or on the roof,” Rutlegde said in a news release. “Mall security confirmed that no smoke or fire entered the actual mall.”
Gwinnett’s hazardous material team was also asked to check for potential runoff in a nearby storm drain but found nothing significant, he said. No one was reported injured.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but investigators found that it started in one of the boats and spread to the other three.
“The damaged boats were all customer-owned and were reportedly at the shop for repairs,” Rutledge said.
