Three rescued off Cork coast after boat fire

 

Three people have been rescued from a boat off the Cork coast this afternoon.

The three jumped into the sea after a fire broke out on board the 28-foot cabin cruiser.

They were picked up by a passing yacht a short time later. None was injured in the incident.

The Kinsale Lifeboat attended the scene but was unable to get the fire under control and the cabin cruiser sank.
