Divers have found the body of the last of the 34 victims of the deadly Labor Day dive boat fire in the Channel Islands. They recovered the bodies of 33 of the victims last week, but didn’t find the last one until Wednesday. The Santa Barbara based “Conception” caught on fire and sank off of Santa Cruz Island September 2nd.

More than  500 people were on hand for a Friday night vigil to remember the victims of the Labor Day boat fire in the Channel Islands which killed 34 people.

Religious and government leaders joined with members of the community for the event in Chase Palm Park.  Tears flowed as people talked about the tragedy.

Since the Conception dive boat tragedy earlier this week, several offers have been made to help first responders, along with the family and friends of the victims.

The offers are coming from local ministers, as well as residents gathering to offer support at the flower memorial near Sea Landing in the Santa Barbara Harbor.

Divers are now reported to have recovered 33 bodies of those who died in a fire which swept through an excursion boat in the Channel Islands over the Labor Day weekend.

The Conception had 39 people on board. It’s believed that 34 of them died in the inferno, so one body is still missing.

Coast Guard officials say they've made the tough decision to suspend the search for possible survivors of a deadly excursion boat fire in the Channel Islands, with efforts now focused on recovering the bodies of those who died in the disaster.

The Santa Barbara community is remembering those lost in the tragic fire on the Conception dive boat.

The walkway to Sea Landing at the harbor where the ship is normally docked now has flowers and burning candles on it.
