A boater in Iowa fired a flare to alert rescuers after running out of fuel.

The flare was spotted one night in October and South King Fire & Rescue responded.

The boat was between Des Moines Marina and Three Tree Point, the team reported.

Rescue workers made contact through the Coast Guard, and the South King Fire & Rescue Marine’s 67 crew towed the boat to Des Moines Marina.

The boat “has more issues than just out of gas,” South King Fire & Rescue said afterwards.
