SARATOGA LAKE - Eight people - all wearing life vests - were pulled from Saratoga Lake after their vessel capsized, Saratoga County Sheriff's officials said.

No injuries were reported.

The incident happened at about 5:15 p.m. Dispatchers received a 911 call then for a boat in distress on the lake. The caller reported a See Doo Speedster craft occupied by eight people sinking. 

The Saratoga County Marine Patrol responded to the scene and found the boat capsized and all occupants were in the water in their life vests. The marine patrol was assisted in the rescue by the Arvin Hart Fire Department, officials said.

The cause of the incident remained under investigation Monday, officials said.
