POMPANO BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - Firefighters extinguished a boat fire behind a home in Pompano Beach.
Pompano Beach Fire Rescue crews responded to the scene near Northeast 16th Street and 28th Avenue, just after 6:30 a.m., Wednesday.
7SkyForce HD hovered over the scene where the 50-foot boat could be seen completely destroyed by the flames.
“It was more fire and then, when they foamed, the smoke was away,” said witness Josephine Limoli, who woke up to the blaze. “It really wasn’t a lot of smoke. It was an amazing thing the way it went on fire. There was no debris here, you didn’t really smell anything.”
Cellphone video captured the boat fully engulfed in flames.
SkyForce captured firefighters extinguishing the fire using water and foam.
7News cameras captured restoration crews working to retrieve any remains and remove anything that could reignite the fire.
Witnesses like Josephine are thankful no one involved was hurt and that the fire wasn’t worse.
“That man is an elderly man, and I was very concerned for him,” she said.
No injuries were reported.
It remains unclear what caused the fire.
