One man was hurt Friday afternoon in a fire at the Boomtown Casino in Harvey.
Terry Thibodaux, the Assistant Chief of Harvey’s Volunteer Fire Department Company 2, says a crew was working on a hydraulic door on the boat’s first floor. Thibodaux says a high-pressure line was ruptured, resulting in a flash fire.
One of the worker’s legs was burned. He was taken to West Jeff Medical Center as a precaution.
The fire also set-off two sprinklers on the boat.
But everything happened inside a restricted area of the boat and away from any customers or gaming activity.
