“Our investigation into this matter revealed that they were heading out to the cayes and they had on the front of the boat, two five gallons filled with gasoline. Apparently, one of the five gallon container wasn’t closed properly and the fumes from the container reached to the initial source where the engine was and that made the five gallon container exploded which started the whole fire and the whole mishap.”
