8 rescued from burning boat in SF Bay

TIBURON, Calif. - Eight people who jumped into San Francisco Bay after a boat they were on caught fire were rescued Saturday.

The agency says the three children and five adults were on a 28-foot boat off Tiburon when they called for help shortly after 12:30 p.m.  
Because of the billowing smoke and hot conditions on board, they were urged to put on life jackets, get into the water and link arms to stay together.

A nearby pleasure boat arrived a few minutes later and pulled them from the water. No injuries were reported.
