Several people have been injured following a boat explosion during a jet sky show on Lake Havasu.  Fire Chief Mike Quijada says hundreds of spectators and dozens of boats lined the shores of the lake to watch the “International Jet Sports Boating Association’s World Finals” event when a pleasure boat went up in

flames.  Witnesses say they heard an explosion and the hatch in the back of the boat blew 50 feet.  At least eight people on the boat suffered burn injuries.  At least three people suffered severe burns and were flown to a nearby burn unit for treatment.  The other injuries were minor.  The cause of the explosion is under investigation.
