A tug boat is on fire after emergency reponders believe it struck a fuel line in Bayou Perot near Lafitte Harbor.

One person was reportedly burned badly in the accident, but all members of the crew are accounted for.

Jefferson Parish Councilman Chris Roberts tells WGNO News that the barge is on fire, and a representative from the U.S. Coast Guard says the fire is burning out of control.
