A boat at an Illinois marina burst into flames on Saturday injuring multiple people.
Illinois State Police told Fox News Digital that a boat with 17 people on board caught fire Saturday at Spring Brook Marina in Seneca, Illinois around 4:26 p.m.
According to police, 13 people on board were transported to local hospitals and one of those individuals was transported by helicopter with “serious injuries.”
One marina employee also suffered non-threatening injuries.
Video posted on social media showed a boat fully engulfed in flames.
