Ferry burns off Spain, passengers rescued

It was a race against time.

Spanish emergency personnel in six boats and two helicopters rushing to a burning ferry where 156 passengers and crew were awaiting rescue.

The ferry was en route to Valencia from the island of Mallorca when it caught fire about an hour into the trip.

Many of the passengers were winched aboard Spanish Civil Guard helicopters.

The Italian company that owns the ferry says it does not know what caused the fire or the state of the ship.

Port authority officials from Mallorca say the burnt-out ferry could sink there — 35 miles off its coast.
