Those are some quick thinking guys, WTF did the reporter keep saying "fully involved" for? Doesn't he mean engulfed?

It backfired and caught on fire and was fully "involved" pretty dang fast. Lucky that it was untied and sort pushed off from the dock when it happened and I'm glad that it was a bow rider gave me a good exit point. Dang lucky cause a burning boat if tied to a fuel dock could have been real bad!!!!!
