Happy Labor Day!
I'm not working, but these guys will be. They were out and about yesterday assisting in the rescue of four people and a dog, as a cabin cruiser caught fire and burned to the waterline just off the Portland Headlight. Luckily, there were quite a few boats nearby, and as thick black smoke billowed skyward, the occupants and the pooch were pulled from the water. Their rescues might be not as dynamic and made-for-tv like the reality show Coast Guard Alaska on the Weather Channel, but they are equally as important.
Just ask those four people yesterday.
Their labors were not lost.
A job well done.
