A fire destroyed three mobile homes and severely damaged a fourth Tuesday at an Antioch Township mobile home park, authorities said.

The fire broke out around 11:40 a.m. at the Grass Lake Marina, in the 26000 block of Heart O’ Lakes Boulevard, according to the Daily Herald.

The high winds made it difficult to control the blaze and small propane tanks exploded during the incident due to the heat from the fire.

Lt. Chris Lienhart of the Antioch Fire Protection District said the fire was out after about 45 minutes.

No injuries were reported.

The trailer park served as a place for boaters to stay on the weekends while boating near Chain O’Lakes.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
