A boat erupted in flames Saturday afternoon in Kaneohe Bay.

The thick black smoke could be seen from miles away.

The emergency call came in around 3:30 p.m. Saturday and it took firefighters almost an hour to put out the fire.

Officials say five people were on board at the time. They got off with help from the Coast Guard.

There were no injuries reported and no word yet on what caused the fire.

The boat came from Marine Corps Base Hawaii.
