The cause of the blaze is unknown, and the fire fighting squad was quick to intervene to control and turn off the fire. No spread to nearby yachts was reported.  Muggiano Shipyard is located at the East part of the large La Spezia basin bordering with Lerici, founded in 1883, and since 2004 owned by Fincantieri shipyard.
