ALABAMA: At least eight people died when a massive fire destroyed dozens of boats in a marina in the US state of Alabama on early Tuesday, BBC reported

The fire quickly spread as people slept at Jackson County Park in Scottsboro. The aluminium roof of the wooden dock collapsed, and some of the boats sank.

Seven people who jumped into the water were rescued and taken to hospital.

The case of fire is yet to be ascertained, said the reports. Rescue teams will search the water to make sure there are no other victims.
