Two rescued during boat fire off St Lucie Inlet

Two rescued during boat fire off St Lucie Inlet.

Martin County Sheriff’s Marine Units worked to extinguish a 41-foot boat fire 2-miles off the St. Lucie Inlet. The two people on board, John E. Vasvilla of Ft. Pierce and Mathew Martin of Lake Worth were traveling from Ft. Piece to Lake Worth when an electrical fire broke out on board. The two abandoned ship and were floating on a life raft for about 10-minutes before a good samaritan picked them up. They were taken to Sandsprit Park. No one was injured. The boat sank shortly after the flames were extinguished.
