A man was severely burned when a boat he was working on caught fire in Warren.

Investigators aren't sure how the fire started, but flames spread from the boat to a carport at 2405 Kenwood Ave SW Thursday afternoon.

Neighbors reported hearing an explosion at the time of the fire.

Officials say Larry Bishop was taken to a hospital for treatment of burns received in the fire, which spread to the home at the address, and also damaged a neighbor's house.

The condition of the victim is not known at this time.

Firefighters were not able to locate two kittens said to be inside the home.
