Boat explodes, 4 suffer burns
CHARLOTTE ó Four people suffered burns after a vintage wooden boat exploded in flames at Point Bay Marina in Charlotte.
Four adults were treated at a hospital for burns and possible fractures.
Charlotte Volunteer Fire and Rescue Battalion Chief Dick St. George says all eight occupants of the boat, including two children, suffered burns but not all needed to be taken to the hospital.
The explosion happened Sunday afternoon after the boat refueled. St. George says the boat didnít start right away and a fuel vapor explosion was ignited during attempts to restart it.
No other boats were affected by the explosion. St. George says the 1946 Chris Craft boat is a total loss.MORE IN This Just InBERLIN – A late-morning head-on collision that occurred on a newly paved, soon-to-be-...
