Some one else told me that he was down river and saw smoke towards
dutch gap and he cruised on up that way and a boat was on fire and then looked like the gas thank blew and wasnt much left of it .
He didn't see anyone around it and later a fire boat came and pumped water on it and put it out and it sank. Also a dock at the power plant was smoldering .
