MDIFW NEWS: July 4th boat fire in Hartland
In the boat with Gibson were five passengers, all under age 16. Gibson was also towing his son and his son’s friend on a tube behind the boat when the fire began. The motorboat that caught fire was a 1997 Rinker that was 18-feet long. The cause of the fire has not been determined, however it appears to have started from within the engine compartment.
