Sucks to be the owner of this $24 million yacht, huh? And you thought you were having a bad day.

According to HuffPo

San Diego boat captain Kurt Roll was using a remote-controlled quadcopter drone to shoot aerial footage at a shipyard in Chula Vista, California on Thursday when he spotted a plume of smoke rising in the distance. Roll decided to use his device to get closer to what appeared to be a massive boat fire, and managed to capture some incredible, close-up footage of a yacht going up in flames.

Larry Jodsass, the owner of the $24 million yacht, said when asked about the fire, “Am I angry? No. Anger is not the right word.” Nor is the right word something that could probably be aired on local television.
