3 people, 2 dogs rescued after jumping from burning yacht in New Hampshire 

Three people and two dogs were rescued after having to jump from a burning yacht after the 72-foot vessel caught on fire in a New Hampshire harbor on Saturday.

Three people and two family dogs were rescued after having to jump from a burning yacht after the 70-foot vessel caught on fire in a New Hampshire harbor on Saturday, authorities said.

New Hampshire State Police said in a statement Saturday that they were alerted to the incident on the Piscataqua River, near Little Harbor in New Castle, at around 4 p.m., with their Marine Patrol units arriving on the scene within minutes.

The vessel, a 2007 Marlow named "Elusive," had been headed toward Wentworth Marina when a passenger noticed black smoke below deck, police said.

The yacht filled with smoke within minutes and the three passengers and two family dogs were forced to jump overboard as the boat became engulfed in flames, they said. The passengers and the two dogs were rescued by nearby boats and taken to shore, police added.

It is unclear what caused the vessel to catch fire, but in a photo shared by the regional U.S. Coast Guard, the boat could be seen fully ablaze, with black smoke billowing overhead.
