Yacht catches fire on the OBX

The Coast Guard is trying to figure out how a yacht caught fire in the Outer Banks.

It happened yesterday four miles east of Corolla.

Currituck emergency management officials say two boaters aboard the 55-foot yacht were able to escape.

Officials say the boaters used a smaller boat to escape the fire.

The Coast Guard and Corolla Fire Rescue managed to get out to the boaters and get them ashore.
