BOWERS BEACH, Del. - A boat fire near Bowers Beach Sunday afternoon left one man injured. 

Deputy Fire Chief Jeff Morris of Bowers Fire Company said two marine units responded to the call about 5:30 Sunday in the Delaware Bay.

Morris said units from South Bowers, Little Creek and Liepsic also responded. They were able to put out the fire without sinking the vessel. 

He said two adults and four children were on board at the time of the fire. He said a neighbor went out with a small boat and brought them back to shore. 

One of the adults was taken to Kent General Hospital in Dover and treated for burns. There is no word on his current condition. 

Marine police are investigating the cause of the fire.
