Boat catches fire off southern Broward County

A boat caught fire Thursday morning off the coast of southern Broward County.

Sky 10 flew over the burning boat in the Atlantic Ocean as a Miami-Dade Fire Rescue boat doused it with foam and water.

Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue said there was a man rescued from the 40-foot sailboat, which was burning about four miles east of Hallandale Beach Boulevard. He was not injured.

The U.S. Coast Guard and Fort Lauderdale police were also at the scene.
