6:01 pm
i'm going to step out of the way, and you can see often the distance that red light in the water, and that is what is left of the boat. for the most part, everybody that was rescued are in good spirits, and they are now thinking the berkeley fire department and the coast guard for making such a quick rescue and ensuring that everybody got on shore safely. this is how it all played out this afternoon. to call came into the u.s. coast guard at around 138 p.m. this afternoon for what is being called a water rescue after the 40 foot ferryboat named the osprey ran aground on rocks. 42 people with crew members were on board and they were barely underway for that boat ran into trouble. the berkeley fire department and the coast guard used three boats to shuttle the passengers back to shore. no one was seriously injured,

6:03 pm
that never happened. >> reporter: some shaken passengers and you are looking at video now of the boat as it was towed out of the area. the boat was carrying the regular passenger load, so it was not overloaded. the biggest question now is for the crewmembers to speak with the coast guard and police. but again, everybody here was in good spirits and laughing and joking they -- as they were able to crack a few beers. >> i am glad they are doing okay. we move on now and the northbay fire victims from journeys in mobile home park just got word that the property will be sold, and the news comes that many received notice from fema that there temporary housing assistance will in this week. our reporter has more on what is being done to keep these

6:06 pm
