LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) - Two people suffered minor injuries after a boat burst into flames near the shore at Boyd Lake State Park on Friday.

Witnesses say they heard a loud noise before seeing flames rise from the boat. Everyone on board managed to escape but two people suffered minor burns.

The burning boat began drifting toward the docks and rangers tried to put out the fire but it was too hot.

The fire spread to a canopy, but that blaze was extinguished by emergency crews.

A marina employee jumped in a dingy and pushed the burning boat away from the marina and dock. That boat also caught fire and was destroyed.
