The one person who was on board the boat was rescued from the water by a Good Samaritan, according to the Coast Guard. They were transferred to a USCG boat and taken to the shore, "with no medical concerns."
The initial call came in at about 6:30 a.m., indicating the 42-foot commercial fishing vessel was on fire about two miles west of Manzanita Beach.
The boat had burned down to the waterline by about 1:30 p.m. and was still smoldering, having drifted to about a mile out from Nehalem Bay State Park.
The Coast Guard said crews were keeping a 1000-yard safety zone around the burning boat. They will continue to monitor the situation.
