LAKE HARTWELL, SC (FOX Carolina) - Tuesday marked one year since a fire at Portman Marina consumed several boats and injured one person.

The fire broke out on dock 6 as a boat owner was working on a boat, and the flames quickly spread.

Anderson County Coroner Greg Shore was one of the people whose boat was lost.

"It was pretty tragic to say the least," Shore said. "I'm the coroner so I work a lot of tragedy but it usually doesn't affect me personally like that did."

He said Tuesday that the entire dock has been rebuilt and everyone who lost their boats now have new ones.
