Firefighters from four communities were called to Monhegan Boat Line at about 6 a.m. Thursday. St. George Fire Chief Tim Polky said neighbors reported hearing a series of explosions at the time of the blaze.

Polky said the building was used as a workshop and storage area. The fire claimed a forklift, tools, a backhoe and other items, but no boats were damaged.
