Sports fishing boat catches fire

A boat berthed at Los Sueños caught fire Monday morning on the high seas, and five U.S. citizens aboard were forced to abandon ship.

The sports fishing boat sunk, but the boat occupants escaped in a small boat.

The incident off the coast of Playa Herradura near Jacó caught the attention of many on land. The fire generated a response from the Servicio Nacional de Guardacostas.
