Coast Guard Saves Two from Fishing Vessel
A fishing vessel caught fire off of Nantucket
The Coast Guard has reported it saved two fisherman after their vessel caught fire in Nantucket. A call was made on 5/11 at roughly 8:50 a.m., while a commercial aircraft also saw smoke coming from the boat.
"While Aids-to-Navigation is our bread and butter, the Oak is a multi-mission platform," said Lt. j. g. Stephen Nolan, the operations officer for the Oak. "It's not everyday we have the opportunity to save lives."
No injuries were reported, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
