Dive Boat Flaming Disaster 34 Dead

What could be a more pleasant way to beat the summer heat?
Than to off waters of Santa Cruz embark on a diving treat
34 people boarded the Conception for a Labor Day Weekend of scuba beneath the waves
Little did anyone know or suspect that only the crew would escape an early grave
In the early morning hours with the divers all asleep below
Crew on deck preparing tanks for the dive the divers would soon go
A fire broke out quickly turning the boat into a raging inferno forcing crew to abandon ship
While below awakening to the smoke and fire the divers were in a deadly grip
No way to escape to the safety of the deck
No way to be able to the inferno deflect
34 people are now in all likelihood dead
Burnt to a crisp in their flaming beds
Hopefully the Coast Guard will learn what caused and prevented escape from the deadly fire
If possible unblocked exits from below deck all boats carrying that many be required
In that case these divers will not have died in vain
The crew will suffer from post traumatic syndrome in their brains
