Report: Crew Aboard Dive Boat That Burned, Sank Slept As Fire Broke Out

A dive boat caught fire and sank off the California coast on Labor Day, killing 34 people.

Reuters reports the vessel had no night watchman on duty when the flames erupted.

That's according to federal safety officials, who said as much on Thursday in a preliminary report into the accident.

The National Transportation Safety Board says all six crew members aboard the 75-foot Conception were asleep when the fire began.
