Huge Yacht Fire Captured By Drone In California

Posted: Updated:

Oh dear. This is the moment a £14.1 million super yacht went up in flames, all caught in spectacular footage by a drone.

The 112-foot boat, called the Polar Bear, was gutted by the blaze in Chula Vista, California last Thursday.

San Diego boat captain, Kurt Roll, was nearby when he spotted a plume of smoke and decided to investigate with a drone he had onboard his own vessel.

The owner of the Polar Bear, Larry Jodsass, a retired electrical engineer, told NBC 7 San Diego: "Am I angry? No. Anger is not the right word.

"It was my toy, my wonderful, beautiful piece of equipment. I think it's the most beautiful boat that ever has been built."

The marina was evacuated during the blaze and fortunately no one was injured.
