Good Samaritan Rescues Three From Boat Fire


Multiple agencies responded to a boat fire in the Choctawhatchee Bay around 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

Destin Fire Rescue and Niceville Fire Rescue responded to put out the fire. The United States Coast Guard and the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office also responded to assist.

There were three people on board the 35 foot vessel, but some Good Samaritans were able to get all of the occupants onto their boat before the vessel caught fire. There were no injuries.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Officers are working to determine the cause of the fire.
