Footage on social media shows that 31.4 meter Astondoa, Ordisi caught fire at a dry dock in Alicante. Shipyard workers in Alicante attempted to extinguish the flames before a firefighting squad arrived on scene who managed to get the blaze under control last night. The origin of the fire remains unknown and an investigation is currently underway. Ordisi is heavily damaged and now missing her superstructure.

According to local publication Diario Informacion, the blaze broke out at 10:30am local time and shortly afterwards 21 firefighters were dispatched to the scene. The cause is believed to be an engine room welding accident. Flames burned for several hours and the yacht appears to be a total loss.

Footage taken the next morning shows that the yacht was essentially destroyed with only portions of its hull being left intact. No crew or workers were harmed during this incident.
