An 80-foot yacht known as the Patron went up in flames Monday at a marina off Alton Road and Third Street in South Beach.
According to WSVN, fire crews arrived around 7:10 p.m. and took nearly two hours to extinguish the flames. Luckily, the blaze didn't spread beyond the boat, and no one was injured, though one person was treated for smoke inhalation after trying to put out the fire.
