It depends... Straight water will boil at 212 F at atmospheric pressure. How much coolant was still in the system? If straight water, it could have been localized boiling in the block or heads if the engine was hot. Parts of the heads may be greater than the average engine temperature and cause localized boiling.
How hot was your engine?
Depending on where you live, it will boil at a lower temperture (here in Colorado Springs straight water will boil at 199F - 6,300' elevation).
