The investigation is officially underway into the deadly fire at Jackson County Park in Scottsboro.

Recovery operations are ongoing after the fire at the boat dock killed eight people and destroyed 35 boats. At least half of the victims who died were children.

The Scottsboro fire chief said it's almost impossible to know just how many people were out on the water as the fire spread. The sheriff's office said as of now, officials don't believe the death toll will rise.
