Fire and medical crews responded to a recreational motor boat under distress near 1790 Water Street on San Diego Bay Monday.
Just before 2 p.m., a 36-foot cabin cruiser started smoking because of an electrical fire while out on the bay for Labor Day.
Victor Banuelos, Lieutenant with Harbor Police, said the boat reported a possible fire in their engine compartment.
“There was no visible flame, there was only some smoke,” Banuelos said.
San Diego Fire Department confirmed the three people on the boat and two Air Marine agents were transported to local area hospitals to be checked for smoke inhalation.
The Coast Guard and San Diego Harbor Police were able to tow the boat to the harbor. There were no flames showing and no immediate threat.
