When firefighters arrived, the boats were completely engulfed and smoke could be seen for miles. Firefighters boarded boats, which were parked on the canal, and began attacking the fire.

2 dead, dozens injured as Australia wildfires raze homes

  2 dead, dozens injured as Australia wildfires raze homes CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Wildfires razing Australia's drought-stricken east coast have left two people dead and several missing, more than 30 injured and over 100 homes destroyed, officials said Saturday. Around 1,500 firefighters were battling 70 fires across Australia's most populous state, New South Wales, with the most intense in the northeast where flames were fanned by strong winds, Rural Fire Service Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said.

After a long day at work a group of construction workers doing a job in the Florida Keys decided to go out for drinks Friday night. It was getting late as the men drank away at The Sugarloaf Lodge on $ 20 million in damages after fire engulfs two luxury yachts in Fort Lauderdale , firefighters say .

Mr. Gallet, the fire chief, said firefighters were still rescuing artworks in the building, hours after the fire had started. The French state, which owns the cathedral, already devotes up to 2 million euros a year in upkeep, or about $ 2 .4 million . The fire came during Holy Week, six days before Easter Sunday.

As Fort Lauderdale firefighters fought the flames, Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue was called in as backup.

Firefighters were able to put out the larger flames, but the fire is still at a smoldering state — meaning that firefighters will continue to work the scene until tomorrow and put out any hotpots, Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue said.

One of the ships was about 160 feet long, the other being around 100 feet long. Both were undergoing renovations when they caught fire. The official cause of the fire is still being investigated.

Firefighters estimate the damage to be around $20 million — one ship is worth between $16 million and $18 million, while the other is worth between $2 million and $4 million.

With help from the Environmental Protection Agency, authorities are monitoring and have put in place measures to combat any contaminants that may pour into the canal, like diesel.

There's little left to see from the latest and loudest Dion Waiters mess other than the sports version of a spill on aisle five now awaiting cleanup. Waiters is not just invisible but irrelevant to the Heat now, as Monday's practice underlined. His time left in town is down to red tape, league rules, proper timing, finding a trade he fits as an accounting measure and using a wet mop to wipe the Heat clean of a relationship far past functional.
