A ferry caught fire off the coast of Puerto Rico, forcing 500 people to evacuate



A fire in the engine room of a cruise ship a mile off the coast of Puerto Rico has spread to the rest of the boat, forcing hundreds of people to leave the boat.

Here's footage of the fire from the shore.

ABC News reports it's not yet clear what caused the fire. No injuries have been reported, and no one has been reported missing as of about 10:15 a.m. EST Wednesday. 

The ferry runs several times per week between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. 

It has cabins for overnight stays, WABC reports.

Policía Puerto Rico tweeted photos of the fire.
