“Today i woke up to a burning smell that apparently came from a yacht across the Marina. Good news it wasn’t mine, bad news wind is bringing the smell directly to my building. Thank god it was empty so no one got injured,” tweeted @jminsdimples.

The yacht was moored at the southern end of the Marina bay, next to the Sayorah Street bridge.
