Investigators: Boat storage fire near Lake Lanier caused $1M in damage

BUFORD — Authorities say it may be weeks before an investigation into the cause of a fire Monday at a Lanier Islands Parkway storage facility can be completed due to the number of vehicles involved.

Some 16 boats, RVs and other vehicles burned at The Landing on Lanier storage facility.

Investigators are currently estimating the loss will exceed $1 million, according to a news release from Hall County Fire Services.

The blaze, which occurred about 3:45 p.m. Monday, sent towering columns of smoke, which were visible from Forsyth County and the surrounding area, over Lake Lanier.
