Two firefighters are recovering after being injured during a boat fire at Jefferson Beach Marina.

Witnesses tell us it looks like a power line fell and struck a sailboat, sparking the fire.

Sources tell us two firefighters were taken to the hospital after being shocked, but should make a full recovery.

DTE crews were on scene for hours working in the area.

Photos show thick black smoke making its way across the water, while another one shows a ball of flames from a nearby marina.

Witness Chip Miller, who owns nearby Miller Marina, tells 7 Action News he saw the aftermath, and can't believe more boats didn't catch on fire.

The conditions of the firefighters right now are unknown.
