$24million Pleasure Yacht Inferno
A video has emerged of a $24million, 112-foot yacht on fire in the Chula Vista Marina, California.
The pleasure yacht, Polar Bear, had been sitting in the shipyard for a number of weeks as it underwent repairs and was discovered to be on fire by workers at 9:20 a.m.
Over 100 workers were soon evacuated, as smoke billowed high into the sky. Witnesses suspect the fire was started by a welding accident, however, no conclusion has been made yet.
Just one worker was treated for smoke inhalation, and luckily the fire did not spread to any other of the boats in the shipyard.
Watch the video taken by a flying drone of the intense fire.
