JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say three fishermen were rescued after their boat caught fire in the St. Marys River near the Georgia-Florida state line.

U.S. Coast Guard officials say they responded to calls for help from the crew of a commercial fishing vessel around 1:50 a.m. Wednesday.

Authorities say the fire was out by the time they arrived at the scene.

The fishermen sustained some burns and were treated by emergency medical personnel in Fernandina Beach, Fla. Their injuries were described as non-life-threatening.
