ELKHORN, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A fire completely destroyed a boat warehouse on County Road O in Elkhorn Monday night, Sept. 12. 

It happened around 10 p.m. and according to the Elkhorn Fire Chief Rod Smith, 10 boats and 50 snowmobiles were destroyed in the fire. 

Twenty-three agencies responded and because there were no fire hydrants nearby, it was difficult to put out, taking six-to-seven hours. 

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
