Saudi Aramco saved 11 Indian seamen Tuesday from a cargo tugboat that caught fire off Jubail in the Eastern Province.

The boat had departed from the Kasphap port in Oman on Monday with 800 goats and was headed to Kuwait through Saudi waters.

Aramco officials and members of the Coast Guard went out on several boats and tried to extinguish the fire, but the burning boat sank.

The boat contained bundles of grass for feeding the goats, which went up in flames.

Two crew members were injured and taken to Jubail General Hospital for treatment. They are in stable condition.
