A total of twenty-five bodies have now been located after a diving boat caught fire off southern California.

Nine people are still missing following the blaze off the coast of Santa Cruz yesterday.

Authorities say they'll continue to search for them, but are "prepared for the worst outcome".

The Coast Guard said authorities had recovered 20 bodies and discovered five more that cannot yet be recovered due to unsafe conditions under the boat.

The 22 metres long commercial scuba diving boat, named Conception, had been anchored near Santa Cruz Island, about 145km off the coast of Santa Barbara when the fire broke out just after 3am on Monday.

The boat was on the final day of a three-day Labour Day weekend dive expedition to the Channel Islands National Park in the Pacific Island when the fire broke out.
