HONOLULU (AP) - The U.S. Coast Guard says it rescued eight people from a burning ship off Honolulu.
The Coast Guard says all eight crewmembers are safe after they were rescued Friday from a burning commercial fishing vessel named Lady Anna.
The Lady Anna was about two miles south of Honolulu Harbor when the Coast Guard overheard radio transmission about the fire.
A Coast Guard patrol boat was nearby and its crewmembers arrived to find black smoke billowing from the engine room. Rescuers fought and extinguished the fire.
The Coast Guard will investigate the cause of the fire.
