Two Rescued From Burning Boat

(Port Aransas) - The Coast Guard rescued two people from a burning fishing boat yesterday. The Customs and Border Protection boat crew discovered the boat on fire just before noon -- off of the shores of Lydia Ann Island. The crew rescued the two people on board and brought them to the coast guard station in Port Aransas.

A good samaritan was able to put the fire out -- but it re-ignited after the passengers were rescued.

At this point -- there's no no word on what started the fire.
