One hurt in Lake Powell houseboat fire

First Published Jun 22 2014 01:45 pm • Last Updated Jun 22 2014 09:26 pm

One person was hurt when a houseboat caught fire on Lake Powell.

The fire, reported about 1 p.m. Saturday, started in the engine compartment of a private houseboat in the Wahweap Marina, said Cynthia Sequanna, a Glen Canyon National Recreation Area park ranger. A boat management company had been working on the vessel and employees were able to put it out with extinguishers — but not before one of them was hurt, Sequanna said.
