BALTIMORE (WJZ)– The Maryland Natural Resources Police are investigating a boat fire that happened at the Solomon’s Yacht Center Thursday night.

Police say the father refused treatment and was not injured while his son, Michael Shawn Franz, 38, of Westminster, sustained second-degree burns and was transported to a local hospital.

Fire crews were able to extinguish the fire.
