SYRACUSE — Two women suffered second-degree burns when the boat they were on caught fire on a northern Indiana lake.
A preliminary investigation shows the fire started about 2:55 p.m. Saturday on Lake Wawasee near Syracuse when the owner attempted to start the vessel after fueling, Indiana’s Department of Natural Resources said Sunday in a release.
The eight people onboard made it to shore. The two injured passengers were taken to a hospital burn center.
Firefighters kept the blaze contained to the boat before it sank.
Syracuse is northwest of Fort Wayne.
