Fire causes $25M in damage to luxury yacht in Chula Vista

CHULA VISTA, Calif. - A fire that destroyed a luxury yacht in Chula Vista last week caused an estimated $25 million in damage.

Fire investigators say the 112-foot yacht called the Polar Bear caught fire at Marine Group Boat Works in the 900 block of G Street.

Due to the intensity of the flames, which began on a lower deck of the private vessel, crews had to fight them from shore, spraying retardant foam and water from ladder hoses. The fire did not spread to any other boats or structures.

It took more than a day for firefighters to completely put the fire out.

The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
