WATCH: Costa del Sol boat goes up in smoke

FIREFIGHTERS were called to a blaze onboard a boat in Fuengirola as thick, black smoke billowed into the sky.

Hundreds of holidaymakers  looked on as the emergency services tackled the fire.

Euro Weekly News reader Debbie Dixon captured this image from the poolside at the Angela Hotel.

She described it as,  ‘A pretty fierce fire that burned for about 15 minutes before the fire engine arrived and promptly extinguished the flames.'

There are no reports of any injuries and investigations continue into the cause of the incident.
