CHICAGO (UKTN) – Investigators Friday tried to determine what caused a boat fire on the city’s Far South Side.

The 30-foot vessel caught fire on land near the Sunset Bay Marina, along the Little Calumet River near 136th Street and Torrence Avenue.

One man was injured and was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in serious condition, according to the fire department.

Video from Chopper 2 showed a 30-foot charred ship at the scene.

Two weeks ago, at least four boats caught fire at Pier 11 Marina, further west on the Little Calumet River at 826 E. 138th St.
