Event details

Hall County Fire Services responded to a reported boat explosion at the gas docks at Lanier Islands around 2:30 Sunday afternoon. Fire officials arrived to find the boat engulfed in flames, an associated dock fire from a jet ski that drifted away from the fire area, and six people with injuries. A 16-year-old girl, a 13-year-old boy, and a 39-year-old woman were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. Austin Spencer said he was there when the incident happened. "My brother pulled the teenage girl and boy out of the water," he said. "My brother, his wife, my mom, and dad were just stepping off the dock when the boat exploded. My brother turned around, pushed the emergency fuel cut off, and ran down the dock. He said the teens were the worst injured. He didn’t say specifically if the teens were the two flown to Grady but by his description of their injuries, I think it’s safe to say there were the ones." The other three people denied ambulance transport to the hospital. The investigation is ongoing.
