A female passenger on a casino shuttle boat that was consumed by a huge fire off Florida's Gulf Coast has died.

Eight other passengers were treated at and released from Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point, Conover said.

A casino boat in Florida caught fire Sunday with 50 passengers on board, resulting in more than a dozen injuries, officials said.

The boat was "fully engulfed" in flames, said Dan Dede, a dispatch supervisor at Pasco County Sheriff's Office and Pasco Fire.

A 42-year-old woman went home after escaping the fire, but became ill late Sunday evening and went to a hospital where she later died. Her name wasn't been released, and a cause of death hadn't been determined.

Officials had originally said none of the 15 injuries were life threatening.

Port Richey Chief of Police Gerard DeCanio says all passengers and crew were able to reach safety in Port Richie after the fire erupted Sunday afternoon. It had only made it about 100 yards from where it originated in Port Richey, about 30 miles north of downtown Tampa.

DeCanio said there was no suspicion of foul play.

"They didn't have much time to decide whether or not to jump", Jandali said.

"The guy that was in the water said, 'Man, jump, jump, jump.' I was like, 'Man, I can't swim.' So I was trying to climb off, and I was dangling off the metal hanger in the front of the boat because I didn't want to let go", Culbreath said.

He says the shuttle boat was close to shore when it had engine problems and the crew chose to turn back.
