A fire in the vessel’s engine room was detected by the yacht's crew, who proceeded to raise the alarm. The crew went through the standard emergency procedures, by closing hatches, and by flooding the engine room with CO2 gas. Local fire fighting crew were tendered to the yacht, and managed to control the fire.
