Latin singer not on board

MIAMI – A yacht that caught fire at a Miami marina belongs to Latin crooner Marc Anthony, his publicist confirmed to Local 10 News on Thursday.

The 120-foot luxury yacht caught fire Wednesday night at the Island Gardens marina on Watson Island.

Miami Department of Fire-Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll said it took about 45 firefighters from the city and Miami-Dade County to battle the blaze.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue spokeswoman Erika Benitez said there were two crew members on board at the time the fire started, but they were able to safely escape.

A publicist for Anthony told Local 10 News that the Grammy Award winner was not on board.
