Seattle police and fire crews battled a fully involved boat fire on Lake Union near Gas Works Park that began about 8:30 p.m.   No one was injured, but a woman who lives aboard the 40-foot pleasure boat is being helped by the Red Cross, according to Seattle Fire Department spokeswoman Helen Fitzpatrick.  A Seattle police boat towed the burning boat away from other vessels in the area.  The Coast Guard has been notified, due to potential pollution from the diesel-powered boat. Fitzpatrick said the cause of the fire was not immediately known.
