Yacht fire

A luxury yacht was destroyed by a fire in Albufeira marina on Monday, after its British owner left the cooker on while trying to help a friend.

The commander of Portimão Port, Marques Pereira, said: “One man was making breakfast while the other was filling water barrels, when he fell into the water. The man in the kitchen went out to help his friend and before he knew it, the boat was on fire.”
