USCG Assists Vessel on Fire off Honolulu

US Coast Guard’s 45-foot Response Boat-Medium crew from Coast Guard Station Honolulu responded to a report of a sailboat on fire off Honolulu, Thursday.

USCG towed the vessel with five people aboard to Pier 38 in Honolulu.

Sector Honolulu Command Center watchstanders received a report at 9 a.m. from patrons at Aloha Tower of the sailboat on fire about a mile off Sand Island.

The watchstanders immediately diverted the Coast Guard Cutter Morgenthau’s smallboat crew, already underway in the harbor for training, and directed the launch of the station’s RB-M crew. Upon arrival the rescue crews assessed the situation and found the crew aboard the sailboat had put the fire out with an extinguisher. No injuries or pollution were reported.
