“Units from Miami-Dade Fire Rescue and Miami Beach Fire Rescue were called upon to assist with water assets,” Miami Fire Rescue captioned the photos. “Fire was under control within 2 hours and no other boats were damaged.”
The 120-foot yacht is believed to belong to Anthony and cost roughly $7 million. It’s unclear what caused the fire to begin with. (RELATED: Kylie Jenner Will Celebrate Her Birthday On $250 Million Yacht)
The photos from this yacht fire are absolutely brutal. I guess it’s not as big of a deal because Anthony is a superstar celebrity, but still. It has to be awful to have completely lost something of this kind of value to a fire.
Hopefully, there wasn’t anything important left on the ship before the fire broke out.
