Updated 2 years ago

Two men and a boy were rescued Thursday morning by Coast Guard members in the water near Jonesport. The boat the three were on reportedly caught fire, so they got in a life raft. All three were taken to a local hospital. “Our crews reacted promptly to rescue these people,” said Lt. Nicholas Barrow, the command duty officer at Sector Northern New England. “In this case the boat crews had to navigate through extremely limited visibility in fog to find the fishermen.”
