A recreational boat went up in flames Saturday evening off of Sanibel Island.

Smoke and flames could be seen up and down the shoreline as boat crews worked to put out the blaze.

It is unclear if anyone was on board the vessel when the fire began. The cause of the fire is also unknown at this time.
