Smoke from the fire could be seen from a wide area of the South Bay. Firefighters got the alarm about 9:15am Thursday and found a112-foot yacht fully engulfed in flames in a dry dock at the Marine Group Boat Works on G Street at Quay Avenue, near the marina.
A fire department spokesman says one person suffered smoke inhalation. He said the boat yard was evacuated but no other yachts were affected.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
