CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Passengers on a Boston duck tour boat on the Charles River have been safely evacuated after the driver noticed smoke from a loose radiator hose.

Bob Schwartz, a spokesman for Boston Duck Tours, tells WCVB-TV that the 22 people on board were transferred to a fire department rescue boat and taken to the Charles Gate Yacht Club on the Cambridge shore. No one was reported injured.

The boat has been towed to shore for inspection.
