Pleasure boats burned in their berths at the Washington Yacht Club in Southeast D.C. early Monday.

Fireboats worked to subdue the blaze.  Four boats were involved in the fire, including one 35-foot craft.  The marina is located at the 1500 block on M Street, Southeast.

The smell of smoke hung over the south Capitol Hill neighborhood Monday, and spilled oil and gas ran into the Anacostia River near the incident.

At 6 a.m., debris was still smoldering.  Investigators worked Monday morning to identify the cause of the fire.
