Boat Fire

DELRAY BEACH,FL (WFLX)@Two people are recovering and a third missing after a boat fire at Delray marina.

As soon as they heard the boom, witnesses started rolling camcorders and cell phones. Witnesses saw two people escape who managed to jump to shore, run for their lives, and get help.

The other person is still missing and presumably did not get off the boat.

It took firefighters over an hour to get everything under control. Even though this happened at a fueling station, they're not ready to say mishandled fuel was definitely the cause.

Although it's still too early to say for sure, firefighters say there is nothing to indicate this was anything but an accident. For them, and for witnesses, the whole thing was hard to watch,especially because they know there was likely someone trapped in the fire.
