Boat burns near Matia Island in the San Juans

No one was seriously injured after a 41-foot-long vessel caught fire near Matia Island Tuesday, June 2, 2020. The occupants were able to escape to shore on their 8' inflatable with assistance from a good samaritan.

Crews from Coast Guard Station Bellingham responded and provided minor first aid and transported the owners back to their home with help from a CBP Air and Marine Operations vessel.

The fire was later extinguished by a crew from the San Juan County Sheriff/Fire Rescue boat.
