CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) --  Officials say a sailboat caught fire and sunk near California Dreaming Thursday morning.

The fire started just after midnight. The scene cleared just before 4 a.m. when the boat sank.

Coast Guard crews created a safety zone around the boat to make sure no other vessels came in contact with it as it ran adrift, fully involved.

Officials say everyone got off the boat safely.
