Six people have been transported to the hospital following a boat fire near the Lake Weatherford Marina, police say.

Just before 3:20 p.m. Saturday, Weatherford firefighters and police responded to the fire. Police said four people were transported to a local hospital by an air ambulance and two patients were transported by ground ambulance. Their conditions are unknown at this time.
