The vessel went ablaze as the Zephyr crew and an embarked U.S. Coast Guard Law Enforcement Detachment approached to intercept the vessel during a routine patrol in U.S. 4th Fleet area of operations. Four suspected smugglers who abandoned their burning vessel were rescued and approximately 1,080 pounds of cocaine were seized. (U.S. Customs and Border Protection Photo)
