A luxury yacht blazed this morning in the Elaphite Islands and filled the morning sky with thick black smoke. “We woke up this morning and saw this. This poor yacht caught fire this morning when we opened our eyes we heard people screaming, everyone was evacuated,” commented an eye-witness for The Dubrovnik Times.
It is still unknown the name of the yacht that burst into flames this morning burning and no official police report has been published.
At 10.30 this morning firefighters and the coast guard were still fighting the blazing yacht. An eye-witness on a neighbouring yacht told The Dubrovnik Times that there were “lots of young people on the yacht plus a mother a small child” and they were taken to another yacht by the coastguard and around 8.30 this morning.
The yacht arrived late last night in the small bay of Vratnik on the Peljesac Peninsular opposite the small Elaphite island of Olipa. From the video it is clear to see that the million dollar yacht even explodes from the flames.
The cause of the fire is not yet known, quite possibly an electrical fault.
