DENNIS, Mass. (AP) - Fire officials say three West Springfield men have been rescued after their 18-foot boat began taking on water offshore from Dennis on Cape Cod.

Dennis Deputy Fire Chief Robert Brown said the men reported trouble at about 6:30 p.m. Sunday as the boat was about a mile and a half east of the mouth of the Bass River. The men reported their engine had stopped and their anchor line wasn’t long enough to secure the boat, which had water coming over the sides from a southwesterly wind.

Brown said the Dennis fire boat brought the men - Imad Baghdad, Moe Baghdad and Edward Soto - to shore. The Dennis and Yarmouth harbormasters secured the boat and towed it to shore.
