PROSPECT, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A woman who was injured when a boat caught fire at a marina in Prospect continues improving and was back home Wednesday night, said family members.

Last week the boat at the Rose Island Yacht Club caught fire.

Melissa Hall lost 30 percent of the bone in her leg, however, loved ones tell us she can wiggle her toes, but there is a chance that infection could set in which would prompt an amputation.

According to witnesses, the boat stalled after it was filled with gas and when those on board tried to restart it, the engine blew up.
