40-foot fishing boat catches fire in Seattle’s Fishermen’s Terminal

Seattle firefighters put out a small electrical fire on a 40-foot fishing trawler tied up to a dock at Fishermen’s Terminal just before 11 p.m. tonight, according to department spokesman Kyle Moore.

A caller told dispatchers smoke was coming from the boat’s engine, Moore said, but it wasn’t clear whether the boat had been running or why it caught fire.  A neighboring boat owner contained the fire with a garden hose until firefighters arrived, a fire department tweet said. Responding crews fully doused the flames in about 15 minutes, Moore said.

No injuries have been reported, and the boat reportedly had minor damage.
