Two people were rescued from the water in Gloucester after the boat they were on caught fire on Monday morning, authorities said.
The Gloucester Fire Department responded to reports of a boat on fire with people in the water near the Blynman Bridge just before 9 a.m., Chief Eric Smith said in a statement.
Crews arrived on the scene to find the small vessel fully engulfed.
The boat’s two occupants were pulled from the water and taken to the hospital with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries, he said.
No names were released.
The Gloucester Harbormaster towed the vessel ashore where the fire department extinguished the flames. The Coast Guard also responded to the scene.
The bridge was closed briefly but has since reopened.
The cause remains under investigation.
