Aboard a burning pleasure boat

A lone man aboard a 42-foot boat says he barely escaped the vessel before it became fully engulfed in flames while under way between Rockport, Maine's Milk and Thacher islands. Heavy black smoke could be seen billowing for miles from the deck of the Catch-A-Tuna, a fiberglass commercial fishing vessel that's currently used as a pleasure craft.
