Fire Rescue teams responded and worked to extinguish the flames before it could spread to other boats. A video shows multiple fire boats on-scene.

"Boat fires can quickly go from a small compartment fire into an unstoppable blaze in a matter of minutes because of the material found on board these vessels," Miami-Dade Fire Rescue said in a statement.

The firefighters used an oil-absorbent to soak up oil on the surface of the water to minimize environmental damage, according to Miami-Dade.
