PACIFIC OCEAN - PACIFIC OCEAN (April 7, 2018) Sailors aboard the Cyclone-class patrol coastal ship USS Zephyr (PC 8) conduct ship-to-ship firefighting to extinguish a fire aboard a low-profile go-fast vessel suspected of smuggling in international waters of the eastern Pacific Ocean, April 7, 2018. The vessel went ablaze as the Zephyr crew and an embarked U.S. Coast Guard law enforcement detachment approached to intercept the vessel during a routine patrol in U.S. 4th Fleet area of operations. Four suspected smugglers who abandoned the burning vessel were rescued and approximately 1,080 pounds of cocaine were seized. (U.S. Customs and Border Protection photo/Released)
