VENTURA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say nobody was hurt when a 30-foot fishing boat ran aground at a Ventura beach.

The city fire department deployed its ocean rescue team after the incident was reported late Sunday in the Pierpont area.

The Ventura County Star newspaper reports (https://bit.ly/1OKoPdu) three adults were still aboard the commercial vessel while waves crashed over the decks. All three were safely removed from the boat.

Officials say several hundred gallons of diesel fuel are on board. Salvage operations are planned as ocean conditions allow.
