Rolling Stones guitarist Ron Wood was one of 12 people rescued from a burning yacht in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, Wednesday night. No one was injured in the incident.
According to the Associated Press, the passengers were taken off the boat and evacuated to a nearby island. The cause of the fire remains unknown, although the yacht suffered a mechanical failure which disabled the craft before it caught ablaze.
Wood and fellow Stones guitarist Keith Richards were in the area visiting a Brazilian island owned by a friend, but Richards was not on the vessel with Wood. The Rolling Stones are scheduled to play a concert April 11 in Rio De Janeiro.
