May 21, 2019

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Crews are searching for someone who may have fallen into the Intracoastal Waterway as firefighters were putting out a fire on a sailboat near a West Palm Beach marina.

West Palm Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Danny Collazo tells news outlets that crews arrived at the marina around 2 a.m. Tuesday after the engine on a boat caught fire. No one appeared to be injured in the fire, but witnesses told rescue crews that someone had fallen off the dock and into the water.

Divers searched for the missing person but had not found anyone by 6:30 a.m.

An investigation continues.
