VIDEOS: Firefighters put out a fire that engulfed two boats at a marina in Dania Beach. 7SkyForce hovered over the scene at 299 Lewis Lane, just south of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Wednesday afternoon. The two boats could be seen fully engulfed in flames as heavy black smoke billowed from them. “We couldn’t breathe in all the bad stuff,” said neighbor Gayle Snow. It took 50 firefighters to fight back the intense flames burning on the boats on Dania Beach Cutoff Canal. “And one caught the fire, and then it caught the next boat and there was a big superyacht that was right behind them,” said witness Tony Pereira. “They were lucky to get that out of there.” Broward Sheriff’s Office Fire Rescue said the fire may have been the result of the work being done on one of the boats.
