Firefighters in Miami put out ship fire
The Miami Fire Rescue was responding to the "Lizzane" after a fire broke out in the foreship of the ship which was docked at 2150 Southwest River Drive in the late afternoon. As of 6 p.m., smoke could be seen billowing from the foreship.
 According to reports, the vessel may have been carrying chemicals onboard. When firefighters first arrived on the scene, they began searching the foreship room by room but were forced to back out because of rising temperatures in certain areas causing their boots to melt. 
The ship's captain led the firefighters through the maze of the vessel. Water from the waterhoses began to boil shortly after coming in contact with the ships deck. Some firefighters had to be pulled out of water that was about, almost waist deep because that water was actually boiling, and they could feel it through their gear. 
By evening the flames had been contained but Miami Fire crews remained on the scene as they kept an eye on several hot spots remaining on the ship. The entire fire fight took over two hours for nearly 50 firefighters on the vessel, as well as on their own fire boats. There were no reports of injuries from the fire, despite some firefighters being treated from the scene. It was yet unknown what caused the fire, though the welding of the ship's new name may have been to blame, among other things.
