ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The Coast Guard says three people were rescued from a sinking river boat in Cook Inlet near Anchorage.

The Coast Guard says it received a report of the sinking vessel Saturday from the Alaska State Troopers and issued an urgent broadcast to mariners in the area.

Vessels from the Army Corps of Engineers and the Anchorage Fire Department responded. The fire crews rescued the passengers and took their 16-foot vessel into tow.

No injuries were reported, and the weather was reported to be calm.
