    San Diego Lifeguards and the U.S. Coast Guard rescued two people and two animals stranded at sea after their boat caught on fire Friday.

    All had abandoned the 50-foot vessel and waited in a dinghy off the coast of Point Loma after calling for help around 7 a.m. officials said.

    When lifeguards arrived, they saw smoke rising from the boat but saw no active flames.

    The owners along with their dog and cat were picked up by lifeguards and returned to San Diego.
