Boat explodes, blower suspected

Fire officials responded to the Gordon Park marina in Cleveland, where a boat exploded and caught fire Thursday morning.

Firefighters say one person had minor burns to their hands and singed eyebrows.

A group was just taking out a boat they’d just purchased at the time of the fire.

It appears they didn’t use a blower to clear engine fumes, or that the blower wasn’t working properly, before the engine was started.

The fire was quickly extinguished, according to a video report by Fox 8 News.
