PAWHUSKA, Okla. (AP) – The state Highway Patrol says three children and two adults were injured when a boat caught fire on Bluestem Lake in northeast Oklahoma.
According to KJRH-TV , troopers say five adults and seven children between the ages of 1 and 9 were on board the vessel when it caught fire late Sunday afternoon.
