HULL, MASS. (WHDH) - The U.S. Coast Guard, local fire crews, and good Samaritans worked together to save four people after a boat went up in flames in Hull.
The Coast Guard said the four people jumped into the water when their 30-foot recreational boat burst into flames were rescued by good Samaritans around 6:30 p.m.
There were no reported injuries.
Although the fire was extinguished, the boat eventually sank.
“The floating hull was fully engulfed in super hot flames,” said one man who witnessed the incident. “The homeowner that was next us, next to the lot where I parked, said he saw the guy jump into the water and one of the other boats. A lot of the local boats ran out and were like following it.”
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
