Firefighters from New Rochelle as well as from Pelham Manor firefighters responded to a fire on a 61-foot Hatteras Motor Yacht at the New York Athletic Club in Pelham Manor.
The Hatteras was on dry dock at the time the fire started.

The owner of the boat was taken to the Jacoby Medical Center in the Bronx to be treated for facial burns.

According to fire officials, the blaze was fully involved by the time they arrived. The Pelham Manor Fire Department was the first to reach the scene.

This happens to be the second boat fire that the New Rochelle Fire Department has extinguished this year. Last Monday, it was at the New Rochelle Municipal Marina.

The cause of these fires are under investigation.
