Four saved from burning 21-footer

Four men trapped on a burning boat in the San Francisco Bay were saved moments before it became engulfed in flames. The men, out fishing on Saturday, ended up trapped on their burning boat about three quarters of a mile out from Candlestick Point. And reaching them wasn't easy.

The boat's owner tells us he doesn't know why it burst into flames, he's only glad it rescue crews were able to save them quickly.

Video shows the 21-foot Sea Sprite fishing boat in flames near Candlestick Point. You can see three men on the bow of the boat attempting to stay away from the flames and smoke. One man was in the water.
