Four crewmembers from the commercial fishing vessel Ocean Gale were rescued by the crew of the commercial fishing vessel Smith Brothers No. 2, after a boat fire 13 miles southwest of Pillar Point Harbor Monday evening, according to the U.S. Coast Guard. 

Fishermen aboard the Ocean Gale, a 37-foot vessel, reported the fire to the Coast Guard at approximately 5 p.m. Monday. The Coast Guard helicopter crew arrived on scene and discovered the Ocean Gale engulfed in flames. The four crewmembers abandoned ship in a life raft and were retrieved by the crew of Smith Brothers No. 2. The four rescued people were taken to Half Moon Bay, according to the Coast Guard.

The cause of the fire is under investigation and there were no reports of injuries.
