 BUFORD, Ga. (AP) - Fire officials say three people have been hospitalized after a boat caught fire on Lake Lanier.

 

      Gwinnett County Fire Lt. Colin S. Rhoden says two adults and a child were taken to local hospitals after a fire aboard a wooden boat Sunday afternoon.

 

      Rhoden says the boat's occupants were able to escape with non-life threatening injuries and the boat was towed to shore.

 

      Rhoden says investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire.
