FALMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — Five people have been rescued from a burning boat off the coast of Cape Cod.

The United States Coast Guard tells New England Cable News a good Samaritan helped the people off the burning 32-foot (9.75-meter) vessel Sunday morning in an area located 18 miles south of Nomans Land, a 628-acre National Wildlife Refuge located three miles from Martha’s Vineyard according to the Cape Cod Times.

The Coast Guard was able to bring the five people back to a Falmouth, Massachusetts shore. There were no reported injuries.

A salvage company has recovered the capsized vessel named Finale.
