Steinbach fire department was called to a boat fire around 4:30pm Wednesday at 67 Oak Crescent.  Assistant Deputy Fire Chief Kelvin Toews says the owner was working on his boat and some fuel caught fire.  The man and his neighbour were able to contain the fire to the boat and put out the blaze.  Fire crews cooled things down with some water and foam when they arrived.

The boat owner was taken to hospital with some burns but his condition is not known at this time.  The boat was parked on the driveway and Toews says it was close to the house but did not spread to it.  There were no other injuries.
