 A boat explosion on Canyon Lake left two people injured, including a baby girl.

The explosion is said to be accidental, according to MCSO.

MCSO says it appears the fire originated in the boat's engine.

One patient, a 7-month-old girl, was flown to the Maricopa County burn unit with arm injuries.

Another patient, that baby's 40-year-old mom, was taken to the hospital by ambulance with burns on her hands and legs.

The fire was contained to one boat.

MCSO is investigating.
