Fire guts yacht

The firefighters from Dubai Civil Defence contained a fire that broke out in a yacht in Dubai Marina on Tuesday afternoon.

 No casualties were reported, said an official source.

The operations room at the Civil Defence was alerted on Tuesday at 3pm.

The firefighters were dispatched to the scene and controlled the fire in nearly 10 minutes, the source added.
