    Several boats caught fire after a reported explosion at a marina on Lake Texoma Wednesday morning. Officials say no one was injured in the fire.

    Witnesses captured pictures of at least a dozen boats on fire at the Highport Marina in the 100 block of Highpoint Circle in Pottsboro at about 10:30 a.m.

    Texas Game Warden Capt. Steve Stapleton says the fire spread from one vessel to another Wednesday and also destroyed a dock at the lake, which serves as a border between Texas and Oklahoma.

    Fire crews prevented flames from spreading to nearby docks at the marina located near Pottsboro, about 70 miles north of Dallas.

    Officials say the U Dock at the marina burned and is not salvageable. 

    It wasn't immediately clear how the fire started.
