Yacht goes up in smoke
A yacht was badly damaged after it burst into flames at the typhoon shelter in Ap Lei Chau yesterday, sending black smoke into the sky.
Police received a report soon after 10am that a yacht moored near Praya Road was engulfed in fire.

Officers believe the fire was caused by a short-circuit and are investigating if it was related to the renovation.
