A crazy scene caught on camera down in the Florida keys – two boats went up in flames at a marina. 

Witnesses could be heard urging people to jump into the water and swim to safety. 

A total of five people ended up making the plunge. 

“This boat exploded. It went up in flames right away. Within 30 seconds, it was totally engulfed in flames. And I had no idea when the Fire Department was going to get here, so I just got a host out,” says John Hull.
