Man burned in boat fire

A man making repairs to a boat docked in George Town suffered major burn injuries Saturday when a flash fire occurred on the boat.  

According to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, the 46-year-old man was working on a 40-foot pontoon boat at the Reef Dock on North Church Street just before 9 a.m.  

The man suffered burns to his arms and legs and was listed in critical condition at the Cayman Islands Hospital on Saturday. He was later airlifted overseas for burn treatment.  

No one else was hurt in the fire, and the boat was not significantly damaged.
