They Were Called to a Ship Fire. Then the Ship Exploded

Nine firefighters responding to a fire aboard a ship in Florida have been hospitalized after the ship exploded, authorities said.

The explosion occurred nearly three hours after firefighters first responded to a ship on fire.

More than 20 crew members on the ship during the initial fire were able to safely get off before the explosion occurred, according to the US Coast Guard.

Of the nine firefighters hospitalized, four were treated for burns, one was taken into surgery for injuries, and another firefighter is in intensive care.

Nearly 150 firefighters are continuing to rotate in teams to battle the blaze aboard the ship.
