There's been a massive fire and explosion at the Port Elgin harbour.
The Saugeen Shores Police and Fire departments responded to the scene with Bruce County paramedics around 2:40 AM on Tuesday.
Fire Chief Phil Eagleson tells us they found seven boats in the winter storage area fully engulfed in flames.
Eagleson tells Bayshore Broadcasting News it was a hot, intense fire to fight since flames were shooting 60 feet into the air.
But he says firefighters were able to stop the flames from spreading to more vessels.
They were on the scene for more than four hours.
Residents in the area were gathering at the scene after being awoken by a loud explosion.

Eagleson tells Bayshore Broadcasting News they heard from people as far as eight blocks away from the harbour, who woke up due to the intensity and noise from the explosion.
Eagleson adds the fire and explosion also caused damage to the washroom building and some nearby trees.
