Three yachts caught fire this evening in the tourist port of San Felice Circeo in the province of Latina. The boats were moored at pier one, the one designated for larger boats. The fire spread from a twenty-metre vessel and then involved the two adjacent vessels.
The moorings of one of the boats broke and now the rescue vehicles are struggling to finish the firefighting operations. Firefighters and coast guard personnel have been mobilised. The local police and carabinieri are on the docks. Mayor Monia Di Cosimo is following the firefighting operations firsthand, and has announced that “the situation is not yet safe”. The causes of the fire have yet to be clarified.
