Fire breaks out in Abu Dhabi: a large fire broke out at the Yacht Club Abu Dhabi Marina and preliminary reports state that eight vessels, presumably luxury yachts, were severely damaged.

At the moment the cause of the fire remains unknown, the case is being investigated. Local news sources state that it took nine teams of fire fighters to get the flames under control in Abu Dhabi.

Their hard work prevented even more damage: there were over 200 vessels at anchor in the marina, most of which are super luxury yachts.

The Prime Minister and Home Office went to the see to evaluate the situation. New details state that the fire started from two of the vessels. All possibilities are being investigated.
