Search resumes Monday at Hales Bar Marina

MARION COUNTY, Tenn. (WDEF) — Local authorities continue to search for the body of a missing man at the Hales Bar Marina in Marion County.

Two boats quickly caught fire Thursday night at Dock G at the Marina, where the Jasper Fire Department and the Haletown Volunteer Fire Department responded.

Recovery efforts were postponed over the weekend because of the cold and resumed today.

Family members think the explosion could possibly be connected to boat repairs, with one saying it sounded like “glass shattering.”

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
