A luxury yacht belonging to Marc Anthony has been destroyed by fire in Miami, according to multiple reports. 

The 120-foot vessel caught fire and capsized as it was docked at the Island Gardens Marina off Watson Island. 

The Latin star wasn’t on the boat, named Andiamo, and no one was injured in the blaze, WSVN reports.

“It’s still a very active scene right now,” Miami Fire Rescue Cpt. Ignatius Carroll was quoted as saying. “Because of the amount of fire on that ship, we had take more of a defensive attack, so we have our fire boats with Miami-Dade County as well.”

It’s unclear what sparked the fire and the Anthony, the multiple-Grammy winning artist and actor, has yet to comment on the incident.

 

“It’s sad…for us, as the marina, and for the boat.” Ata Bayrakrtar, a family member of the marina’s owner, told the network. Right now, he continued, “everything is under control.” 

It hasn't all been bad this year for Anthony. In recent months he received the international artist award of excellence at the 2019 Latin American Music Awards, and became the first Latin artist to perform at San Francisco's new Chase Center.
