Fire destroys yacht at dry dock in Alicante

ADVERTISEMENT

Fire broke out early Tuesday and quickly spread across M/Y Ordisi while the 31m yacht was in dry dock in Alicante on the Costa Blanca, Spain, according to news reports.

The fire broke out mid-morning, according to local newspaper Diario Informacion, and burned for several hours. Ten boatyard workers who tried to put out the flames before firefighters arrived suffered from smoke inhalation. Nine were taken to the hospital for treatment and later released. A cat was reportedly rescued by a firefighter who scaled a ladder to rescue it from the bow.

The cause is believed to be an engine room welding accident, according to Diario Informacion, and the yacht appears to be a total loss.

Ordisi was launched in 2002 by Astondoa as part of their 102 GLX series.
