SOUTH MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A houseboat was destroyed after, officials said, it caught fire off South Miami-Dade, Saturday afternoon.

Cellphone video captured big flames shooting from the 50-foot vessel floating just off shore near the Homestead Bayfront Park.

“I was concerned that anyone else also wouldn’t notice it right away ’cause it was kind of like not so obvious at first,” said witness Ketty Urbay, “and I was scared that all of a sudden it would catch aflame or blow up or somebody and someone was too close to it, and they could get hurt.”

Firefighters eventually put out the blaze.

No one was injured.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
