A plaque with the names of those who died when a dive boat caught fire one year ago off the Southern California coast was unveiled Wednesday morning.

The permanent memorial at the Conception dive boat’s home dock in Santa Barbara Harbor features the names of the 34 people killed when the 75-foot commercial diving vessel caught fire Sept. 2, 2019.

Conception was anchored in Platts Harbor off Santa Cruz Island when it caught fire in the early morning hours, killing one crew member and all 33 passengers.
