FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - A 110-foot yacht docked for renovations caught fire Tuesday afternoon in Fort Lauderdale.

Sky 10 was above the scene as the boat was burning at 2200 Marina Bay Drive.

At one point, large plumes of smoke were coming from the hatch leading below deck.

A firefighter could be seen putting a water hose in one of the portholes.

Authorities said dozens of firefighters responded to the scene.

A number of workers were aboard the yacht at the time the fire sparked and they tried to extinguish the flames.

"We tried to take all the fire extinguishers and everything else inside, tried to hose it," Clive Reid said. "We couldn't stop the fire."

One person was treated for smoke inhalation, but no serious injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
