Mega-yacht nearly ends in flames
Percance0 07 de noviembre de 2013A mega yacht named "Azul", flying a Mexican flag, was in dry dock at Villa Vera Marina receiving fiberglass repairs and maintenance when a fire broke out in a container of trash that contained some of the fiberglass catalyst. This sparked a fire alert on board the yacht and the warning spread rapidly. Emergency crews from Civil Protection and Aguakan arrived shortly after 7pm, and were denied access temporarily, which was an oversight.When workers realized the problem they boarded the boat, threw the container overboard, and extinguished the fire. It is not known whether there was damage to the yacht, and authorities did not issue a statement.
