Crank up the Kenny Loggins and pour a Tom Collins into the ocean for our fallen yacht homies. Four mega-yachts went up in smoke and down into the ocean after a fire erupted at the Grove Harbour Marina in Coconut Grove early Saturday morning. Luckily nobody was seriously injured, but one person was taken to the hospital with burns.
The fire apparently started on a 65-foot boat parked at the marina, located in the 2000 block of South Bayshore Drive. The fire spread to three other yachts, the largest of which was an 88-footer. Crews had to remove one of the yachts to prevent the spread of flames to even more yachts.
Below is raw footage of the flames, courtesy of NBC Miami:

"Two of them are still floating. One of them is on the bottom. But the hulls still appear to be intact," a Sea Tow worker told WSVN.
Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the fire.
