Luxury yacht goes up in flames off coast in Dubai

Last Friday, 17th January, a fire broke out aboard a yacht just off the coast of Madinat Jumeirah, an ultra-luxury hotel and shopping district in Dubai.

The Dubai Media Office reports that three people were safely evacuated from the vessel and there were no injuries. The fire is believed to be caused by an engine failure and fuel leakage during sea trials.

The fire quickly drew international attention due to political tensions, but was confirmed to be the fault of an engine failure.
