(KMOV) – A dock, a boat and a power boat loaded with four adults and five children caught fire Friday night on Lake St. Louis, fire officials say.

According to authorities, boaters were trying to start the engine at the dock and were having trouble getting it to start. When it did start, it almost immediately caught fire.

No one was injured. Everyone got off the boat safely and pushed the boat into the late, but wind blew it back into the dock, where the dock and another boat caught fire.

The first boat was totaled and the second one sustained moderate damage.
