The boat fire in Puerto Pollensa. | Bombers de Mallorca (Majorca Fire Brigade)

Three boats in Puerto Pollensa were destroyed by fire on Sunday morning.

The fire started on a "llaüt" and affected two other boats next to it. The incident occurred at around half two. Fire crews from Alcudia and Inca attended the scene. The damage was such that all three boats sank.

It is thought that the fire was started by a lightning strike. There was a storm in the area around that time.
