The station's watchstanders received a call from the operator of the boat at 7:06 a.m., stating their boat caught fire and five people were disembarking into a life raft with life jackets on.
The good Samaritan Deliverance crew saw the fire and recovered the survivors from the life raft while about five miles east of Capers Inlet.
A 45-foot Response Boat-Medium (RBM) from the Coast Guard Station Charleston responded to the scene and picked up the survivors to bring back to the station.
“This case was a successful one due to the fact all five people had life jackets on and a life raft was able to get them safely off the burning vessel,” said Petty Officer 3rd Class Max Alderman, RBM operator. "We want all mariners to always practice safe boating and make sure their safety equipment is checked regularly."
No injuries were reported, according to the Coast Guard.
The boat is partially submerged and the fire is extinguished.
