Rescue workers have confirmed the deaths of 25 people and say nine others are missing after a fire on a scuba diving boat Monday off the coast of Southern California. The Coast Guard said it received a mayday call about 3:15 a.m. and arrived at the scene to find the Conception engulfed in flames. Five crew members survived by jumping overboard shortly after the blaze broke out.
