Three adults and a child have been rescued from a fire onboard a motor cruiser on Upper Lough Erne in County Fermanagh.
The crusier (pictured on the left) was towed away for repair
It happened at Carrybridge just after 2000 BST on Wednesday.
The fire, in the engine compartment, was extinguished by onboard safety systems. One adult sustained superficial burns to his hands.
Lawrence Cummings from the Coastguard said the occupants of the cruiser were brought ashore by a lifeboat.
"The occupants were quite shaken and ready to abandon the vessel because of the extent of the fire," he said.
"They were all wearing life-jackets, very sensibly, and were in mobile phone contact with both ourselves and the police.
"They made the call through the police and the police asked us to co-ordinate the rescue."
The Coastguard said that it had co-ordinated a multi-agency response to the incident, with specialist fire crews mobilised from Belfast and a helicopter sent from Sligo.
The crusier was towed away for repair on Thursday.
