The Coast Guard says the pleasure boat Not Logical was reported on fire south of Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor, Wash., at about 5:45 p.m. Saturday.

The Coast Guard says the seven people abandoned the pleasure boat, got into a dinghy and were all reported to be fine. It's uncertain how the fire started.
