Boat explodes on St. Croix River near Minnesota-Wisconsin border

No one was injured but it was quite the scene on Friday evening.

Authorities say no one was injured when a boat exploded in the St. Croix River near downtown Hudson, Wisconsin on Friday evening. 

Hudson Fire Company #1 was on the scene and posted a short video of the boat fully engulfed in flames. 

The exact location of the fire was just east of the Interstate 94 bridge that separates Minnesota and Wisconsin. 

KSTP reports that authorities were able to minimize fuel leaking into the river. It's not yet clear what caused the explosion.
