Captain Dale Duke of Selma Fire Department said an investigation is currently underway.

“We don’t know what is, but whatever we find out we’ll let you know,” he said.

As officials continued their investigation, onlookers at the nearby marina restaurant kept close watch.

It was rumored among the crowd that a considerable amount of diesel fuel is the unknown substance.

Despite the flashing fire truck lights, the marina patrons managed to enjoy their night out.
