A yacht suffered extensive damage in a fire over the weekend.

"It was well involved and intense when we arrived," he said, adding the boat was tied to a dock.

While firefighters battled the blaze from the shore, a marine rescue unit, which just happened to be in the area at the time, stood by to help on the water side.

"They just happened to be there, thank goodness," Sim said.

There were no injuries and no one was on board at the time of the blaze, he said.

The cause of the fire is not yet known and is currently under investigation.
