By Staff Brunswick Beacon

Twenty-six people have been rescued by the Coast Guard after a charter fishing boat caught fire early this morning.

Just before 11:30 a.m. 26 people were taken to the triage center set up by emergency crews at the Calabash docks.

While the cause of the blaze is unknown, men, women and children of all ages were forced to abandon the 45-foot custom fishing boat, Miss Calabash II, when the boat caught fire, causing black, billowing smoke to surround it.
