Posted: Updated:

A boat with several people onboard caught fire Saturday during the Deep Sea Fishing Tournament off the coast of Port Aransas.

The boat called "Let it Ride" was in town for the 77th annual fishing tournament. According to family members on the boat, they were having electrical difficulties. They tried putting out the fire but it didn't work. 

Another nearby boater saw they were in trouble and came to their rescue.
