The fire on three yachts at the Larnaca marina was put under control late on Thursday afternoon.

According to fire services spokesman Andreas Kettis, the fire broke out at around 12pm on three vessels though the cause is still unknown.

The vessels were fiberglass yachts.

Two fire trucks were deployed to the scene and the fire on one of the yachts was extinguished first.

A private company towed the other two to a safe place amid efforts to obliterate the flames.

No injuries were reported.

Authorities from the Larnaca marina were making arrangements to bring all yachts to shore so inspections could be carried out and the cause of the fire could be determined.

The scene will be guarded by police officers, while fire services were staying alert in case the flames surged again.
