911 Calls: "All that I see is fire."

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday released emergency dispatch recordings from Sunday, when the Island Breeze casino boat shuttle caught fire on the Pithlachascotee River in Port Richey with 50 people aboard. Seven people called 911 to report the fire, including a passenger from the boat. One woman from shore described people jumping from the ship while others remained on board. She couldn't tell how many. "All that I see right now is fire," she said. One of the passengers, a 42-year-old mother of two, would later die, though authorities have not disclosed the cause of her death. (Calls have been edited for brevity).
