Douglas - A Douglas Manufacturer works to recover after a fire destroyed his business Monday afternoon.  "At this point, we are just in an assessment mode today and to see where we stand on everything," Steve Harris says, owner of Marine Manufacturing.

And now investigators are combing through the rubble to determine what caused the inferno.

Firefighters were still on scene today after a fire Monday afternoon that devastated a boat factory in Douglas.

Marine Manufacturing Owner Steve Harris estimates the fire cost him millions of dollars in damages...destroying boats, moldings, and offices.

He says although almost everything was lost in the blaze, he believes his company will pull through and he'll keep the employees who once called this building home.  "We think we can survive this. There are probably in the vicinity about 100 people impacted by this here and we'd like to preserve those jobs if at all possible and continue to operate."

Fire officials think the fire was an accident, likely caused by a problem with an exhaust fan, but the investigation continues. They hope to have a full report complete by next week.
