“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.
