Man rescued from boat fire in Agate Passage

The Associated Press

BREMERTON — A man was safely rescued from his burning boat Thursday morning in Agate Passage, between Bainbridge Island and the north end of the Kitsap Peninsula.

A passing boater came alongside for the man, but they were unable to save a dog aboard the 30-foot motorboat, says North Kitsap Fire and Rescue spokeswoman Michele Laboda.

Video from KIRO-TV showed the boat was totally involved in flames.

The Kitsap Sun reports a North Kitsap fire boat and Coast Guard boat extinguished the fire with foam and water.
