Two people received second- and third-degree burns yesterday morning after trying to douse a fire aboard their 26-foot pleasure boat docked at the Hand Marina in Orchard Beach.

Firefighters from Anne Arundel County's Orchard Beach station and the state Department of Natural Resources responded around 10 a.m. and quickly extinguished the fire, said Anne Arundel County fire spokesman Robert L. Rose.

The victims, a man and a woman, were flown by Maryland state police helicopter to the Maryland Burn Center at Johns Hopkins University Medical Center. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
