LITTLE COMPTON, R.I. -

A sailboat caught fire and sank Friday morning off the coast of Little Compton.

Officials told NBC 10 there were four people on board who were picked up by another boat. There were no reports of any injuries.

The Little Compton fire chief said its rescue boat responded to the call, as well as other boats from nearby towns. But they were called back when it was determined they were not needed.

When the Coast Guard boat arrived the sailboat was beyond saving.
