Could fireboat have saved $3.5M yacht?

A $3.5 million yacht was destroyed in a fire last weekend and a Daytona Beach, Fla., TV newscast asked Monday if a firefighting boat could have helped put out the fire. Daytona Beach used to have a fire boat, but got rid of it to save money.

It took Daytona Beach firefighters more than seven hours to extinguish the blaze Saturday.
