A 10-metre launch is on fire in the Hauraki Gulf with two
people still on board.
Fire crews are heading to Anchorite Rock on police boat
Deodar, but it could be up to 40 minutes by the time they
reach the burning boat.
Fire Service spokesman Jaron Phillips said the two people had
moved from the cabin to the upper deck.
Other boats and the Coastguard were alongside.
It is not clear how the fire started.
