LANHAM, Md. (WNEW/AP) — One woman was injured as firefighters battled fires on two boats in a marina located in the Inner Harbor Saturday.

Baltimore fire officials say firefighters rescued the woman who was trapped on one of the burning boats.

The fire broke out around 1 p.m. Saturday in the water off Aliceanna Street in Harbor East. Two boats were burning when firefighters arrived.

Fire department spokesman Capt. Ronan Clark says crews were told that someone was aboard one of the boats. They were able to rescue the woman from below deck.

She was taken to a hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries. No one else was hurt.

Originally one boat was on fire but it spread to a second boat nearby, according to officials.

The fire is estimated to have caused $100,000 in damage. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.

Many witnesses in the area took in the tremendous scene that produced a massive amount of smoke that could be seen for miles.
