Shortly after 2:00 pm I looked up and saw a giant plume of smoke coming out of Scenic Bay just off MacDonald's Resort. After reporting it to 911 dispatch, two fire boats arrived, but the fire had likely consumed most of the fuel.
EMT its were heard in the distance. An 8 year old boy and a 70 year old man were severely burned, with extensive second degree burns below the waist along with hand and arm burns.
Life Flight was dispatched for a helicopter pickup. I have no current info on the size of the boat or the names of the injured.
