HARWICH (CBS) — A boater had to be rescued after his vessel caught fire off Cape Cod Sunday morning.

Harwich fire officials said the engine of a 24-foot fiberglass boat sparked a fire about a quarter mile off shore.

The boat occupant was rescued by the harbormaster, officials said. He was taken to Cape Cod Hospital, where his condition was not known.
