A fishing vessel caught fire off the coast of St. John's on Friday night. 

The ship made a distress call around 8:00 pm last night to the coast guard.

The coast guard dispatched two vessels and a helicopter. There were also several fishing boats that responded to the call.

All four crew members were safely rescued from a life-raft after abandoning their vessel. They were in their life-raft for about two hours. There were no injuries.
