Authorities said that all injuries sustained by passengers are not life threatening. Several were rushed to hospital, some with smoke inhalation and others suffering from the cold, with most expected to make a swift recovery.

The shuttle boat remained on fire at 7 p.m., almost three hours after the blaze was first reported. It is located offshore because it can't legally operate close to land.
