At least one person was hospitalized due to burn injuries after a boat in Tennessee exploded, WSMV-TV reported on May 11.
According to reports, a boat docked at Concord Marina in the western portion of Knoxville exploded on Sunday. The boat reportedly erupted when its captain turned on the engine after refilling it with fuel. The boat captain’s spouse, identified as Nancy Longnaker, 64, suffered burn injuries to her legs and was taken to the UT Medical Center by responding emergency crews. The fuel dock will temporarily be out of service due to substantial damage caused by the blast.
