A 60-ft boat caught fire Sunday off the coast of San Diego.

The boat was about 10 miles soutwest of Point Loma when fire broke out onboard.

Two people on board jumped onto a small lifeboat to escape the flames.

Good Samaritans on a nearby boat took the passengers aboard until the U.S. Coast Guard could arrive on scene.

No one was hurt.

The Coast Guard said it took an hour and a half for the boat to burn and then sink.

The cause of the fire is unknown.
