Newburgh firefighters work to extinguish flames on a 30-foot Sea Ray pleasure boat as it burns on the Hudson River near the Newburgh Marina in Newburgh, NY on Saturday, May 19, 2012. There were no injuries as two occupants on the boat escaped the flames by jumping in the river and were subsequently brought ashore. *(photographed from the Newburgh Marina with a Canon 5D Mark II & Canon 300mm f/2.8 AF + 2X tele-extender.)
