Large fire damages Lake Cumberland marina
MONTICELLO, Ky. (AP) — A large fire has damaged a Lake Cumberland marina in southern Kentucky.
News outlets report the fire at Conley Bottom Resort in Monticello started around 2 a.m. Monday. Firefighters say no one was injured.
Marina co-owner Freddie Piercy told WKYT-TV that the blaze destroyed the store and café and damaged a houseboat used by the marina. Piercy says no rental boats were damaged.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that South Kentucky Rural Electric Cooperative Corporation says 225 customers were without power in the area following the fire.
Conley Bottom Resort describes itself as a family fun destination offering waterfront lodging and houseboat rentals.
Despite the fire damage, Piercy says the marina plans to be open for Memorial Day weekend.
