HOLMEN, Wis. -

If you leave your boat outside, the Holmen Police Department wants you to be aware of a potentially dangerous incident that happened on July 1.

A man reported damage to his boat motor on Monday. Holmen police say the gas line to the boat motor and the spark plug were cut. The two lines were combined, so if the ignition was turned on, it would create a spark in the gas line and could potentially cause an explosion, Holmen police explained.  

If you leave your boat outside, Holmen police say you should check your property regularly in order to avoid serious injury.
