A child reported as a fifth victim in a deadly houseboat explosion that killed a Colorado woman in Utah.

The National Park Service said a boy sustained minor injuries in the blast. 52-year-old Kirsten Meyer of Castle Rock was the only person killed in the explosion. Four others were critically injured.

The boy was treated and released from the hospital Thursday night, the other four were flown to hospitals in Colorado and Utah with burns, broken bones and facial injuries.

Officials said the generator blew up when someone tried to start it Wednesday night while a large group of about 25 people vacationed in the remote Crystal Springs Canyon area.
