A Jupiter man was among those injured in a yacht fire Saturday off the New England coast.

The 72-foot yacht, named "Elusive," sank in the Piscataqua River near Kittery, Maine, after a fire erupted Saturday afternoon in a New Hampshire harbor.

According to the U.S. Coast Guard, three people were on board at the time, including Jarod Tubbs, 33, of Jupiter.

All three people on board, along with two dogs, jumped into the water and were rescued.

They were taken to Portsmouth Hospital, where they were treated and released.

The yacht drifted out of the harbor and across the state line into Maine, where it eventually sank.
