Two people were injured today when a boat exploded near the Treasure Island Marina in Panama City Beach.

 Witnesses on scene told News 13 that the boat exploded as it was being refueled shortly before 3 p.m. Bay County officials said two adults were transported to the hospital, one with serious burns and the other with moderate burns. 

Although multiple agencies, including the U.S. Coast Guard, Bay County Fire Department and Florida Fish and Wildlife Officers responded to the scene it was actually The Sea Screamer that was able to put out the blaze, witnesses said.
