Yacht catches fire off the coast of Nice with 15 aboard

A fire has reportedly broken out on board a 39m Feadship yacht just off the coast of Nice, close to the airport. 

Thought to have started around 2:00pm today local time aboard M/Y If Only, local newspaper Nice Matin reported that fire fighters were quickly on the scene, successfully recovering the 11 passengers and four crew on board. 

A large plume of smoke is reportedly still visible from the beach, with the yacht anchored around five miles off the coast. It is thought that she arrived from Italy shortly before the fire broke out.
