A Dania Beach couple barely escaped an early morning fire that consumed their 42-foot yacht, Lady Di. It took more than 60 Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue firefighters two hours to put out the blaze at the Dania Beach Marina.

Loud pounding on the side of their boat woke up a Dania Beach couple early Wednesday morning. It was their neighbors, warning them that the 42-foot yacht they lived on was ablaze.

The couple narrowly escaped with a handful of personal belongings and their dog, Cocoa, before the fire consumed “Lady Di.” It took 60 firefighters two hours to put out the flames, which didn’t spread to any other vessels at the Dania Beach Marina on 151 North Beach Rd.

No one was hurt, but the Criss Craft luxury boat was totally destroyed.
