Man pulled to safety after boat catches fire

A MAN has been pulled to safety after a boat burst into flames in Moreton Bay.

A Queensland Fire and Emergency Services spokesman said the flaming vessel was in waters about four kilometres off Wellington Point, south-east of Brisbane.

Two fire crews were coordinating with police and paramedics at the boat fire, which was called in about 9.35am.

The fire was still burning about 10.15am.

Pictures from Nine News and Seven News helicopters showed smoke billowing from the water as flames tore the vessel apart.
