KANEOHE, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Bonnie Kahape'a-Tanner was sailing on Ahu O Laka, or the Kaneohe Sandbar, around 3:30 p.m. Saturday when her daughter first noticed the flames in the distance.

The captain helped three men and two women from the water onto her boat.

The group said the engine had problems starting before the fire sparked. They did not report any injuries. The boat is a pontoon vessel from Marine Corps Base Hawaii.
