Thick smoke can be seen over Torquay at midday. A yacht caught fire in the port of the coastal town in southern England. There are thousands of liters of diesel in the ship. The fire brigade doesn't mind.
A yacht caught fire and then sank in the port of the southern English coastal town of Torquay. "The boat sank, so the fire is out now," said the local fire brigade, which had previously worked for hours with a number of forces to extinguish the fire.
According to the information, the boat had around 8,000 liters of diesel on board, which is why the environmental authority was turned on, which immediately got to work with special equipment. The fire on the almost 26 meter long yacht broke out around noon. The cause of the fire is not yet clear.
Thick, black clouds of smoke could be seen over the white boat in footage released by the BBC. Residents have been instructed to avoid the area and keep doors and windows closed for the time being. According to the police, there should be no injuries.
