A Micanopy man was evacuated from a burning 26-foot boat about 15 miles west of Cedar Key by the Coast Guard on Saturday and brought to George Lewis Airport for treatment, according to information provided by the agency and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission.
Clifford Burnham, 49, had been in the water for about an hour, clinging to the cowling of an outboard motor on his 26-foot boat, when the Coast Guard arrived in response to a radio call.
