Highway Patrol Says 5 Hurt in Boat Fire Near Pawhuska

Oklahoma Department of Tourism

Three children and two adults were injured when a boat caught fire on Bluestem Lake in northeast Oklahoma.

State Troopers say five adults and seven children between the ages of 1 and 9 were on board the vessel when it caught fire late Sunday afternoon.

Of the five who were injured, two of the children and one adult were airlifted to a Tulsa hospital.

The Highway Patrol says fumes in the engine caused the boat to ignite because it wasn't properly ventilated.
