The U.S Coast Guard has pulled 400 gallons of oil from the water at the Riviera Marina in Charlotte County after several boats caught fire on Friday.

Investigators say as many as nine boats were engulfed in flames.

Right now, the Coast Guard’s goal is to try and get as much oil and gas out of the water as possible.
