A massive fire tore through the marina in the historic town of Mystic, Connecticut Sunday night.

The fire started on Washington Street at the Seaport Marine Warehouse.

Windy conditions made it difficult for firefighters to get the flames under control, made worse by several propane tanks that exploded in the burning buildings, according to fire officials.

“It was heavy fire, coming out the front of the building,” said Mystic Fire Chief Anthony Manfredi, Jr. “It was a wind-driven fire, so it was spreading very rapidly. Everybody did a great job – it was a very dangerous situation.”

Fire crews had to use a fire boat and pull water from the Mystic River to put out the flames. According to officials, at least one firefighter was hurt while putting out the blaze, but is expected to be OK.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
