    34 people dead after the dive boat out of Santa Barbara harbor caught fire near Santa Cruz Island. Damn, may victims Rest In Peace. I wonder what made the boat catch flames, horrible incident all the way around

    Yes, it is tragic. On national news.
    Not sure if we'll ever know the cause - for one it might be kept quiet, and two the evidence is down 65'. However, the crew jumped off and may know what happened.

    I think I'm incorrect about it being 65' down - from pics I saw it appears to be still floating??

    I can't help but wonder if someone's vape pen etc shorted out.. or a cell phone/GoPro charger, etc.. no matter what, a truly ugly thing

    I had already gotten out of the car getting home this morning, when KOGO talked about it, but the blurb suggested it might have been a cell phone or something along those lines. Not outside the realm of possibility...

    Those lithium ion batteries can be dangerous if overcharged quickly. Was on a sport boat recently and someone ripped out their charger from an outlet because it became too hot to touch in just a couple minutes. I wonder what kind of voltage those things are cranking out.

    Anyone remember that Samsung Galaxy phone a year or two ago that was banned from airplanes because they heated up so much they'd smolder!

    guess the whole crew was sleeping while it happened and no one was on fire watch smhhhh. Sounds about right though that’s what I was suspecting as well

    USCG reg requires someone at the helm at all times while underway or anchored (except while at port) To have an empty captain's chair at these times is a real violation of the safety rules-regs governing the operation of charter boats.
