Video: Pershing 88 catches fire off the coast of Italy

A plume of black smoke rose from the 27-meter yacht near the Li Galli archipelago in Positano.

Rescue teams rescued the 10 people aboard the destroyed Pershing 88 after a fire in Positano, Italy.

The boat was completely engulfed in flames, but rescuers managed to rescue the 10 people who were on board.

The yacht, a Pershing 88 intended for charter, was near the Punta Campanella protected area when the fire began to develop. The flames are likely to have broken out on deck due to a malfunction in the engine room.
