SEVIERVILLE (WATE) - Everyone made it off a boat safely that caught fire Sunday afternoon on Douglas Lake.

According to Sevier County dispatch, the call came in around 3:30 on a reported boat fire around the area of the boat launch and picnic area.

The Sevier County Fire Department was unable to make it out in the water to where the boat was burning because of its distance from the shore.

It is unknown how many individuals were on the boat at the time the fire ignited, but no injuries have been reported at this time.

The cause of this fire is unknown at this time.
