TEXAS TOWNSHIP -- (WKZO) Investigators suspect a build up of gas fumes was the reason for a boat explosion on Eagle Lake in Kalamazoo’s Texas Township that sent five people, including three children to the hospital.

It happened about 4PM Saturday at the Eagle Lake boat launch. The impact of the explosion rocked homes along the lake and brought help almost immediately.
The pilot hit the ignition, it exploded and the five on board all went into the water.   Pam Collins of Kalamazoo is reported in fair condition.

One child also remains hospitalized with burns. Heather Frost of Howe, Indiana and two of her other children were treated and released.
Emergency personnel are calling the 21-foot Chris-Craft a total loss.
