A boat caught fire in the Palm Beach Inlet Wednesday afternoon.

A Riviera Beach Marine unit removed two people from the water near the 33’ sports fisherman, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

The survivors were not hurt and had jumped from the burning vessel before rescuers arrived, according to Riviera Beach police.

It’s unclear how the fire started. Sea Tow was called to try and put out the flames.
