A 28-foot sailboat sank after catching fire while traveling on the Port Royal Sound near Skull Creek around 10:30 p.m. Saturday.
U.S. Coast Guard crew were the first to respond to the scene.
Officials say one person was aboard the boat during the time of the incident and jumped into the water to escape the flames. The Coast Guard was able to pull him from the water safely.
According to Chris Morris from Sea Tow, the boat burned to the water line and then sank.
