A Florida fishing boat had to be evacuated this week after it suddenly bursts into flames.

Early this week in Choctawhatchee Bay, one Florida fishing boat did not get the return from dry dock it was looking for.

HarborWalk Charters captain David Nettles had just returned his boat, Gulf Ranger, to HarborWalk Village in Choctawhatchee Bay just off the coast of Destin, Florida. Nettles had to jump overboard when the boat suddenly caught fire.

The Destin Coast Guard Station responded to the boat fire as well as several area fire departments, and luckily there were no injuries during the fire. There is currently no word on exactly what caused the fire, or on how much damage the blaze caused.
