Fire damages Kodiak, Alaska, ship at Seattle pier

The Associated Press

Fire has damaged the 167-foot Bristol Leader fishing ship moored at Pier 91 in Seattle.

Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore says smoke was reported coming from the galley about 3 a.m. Tuesday, and about two dozen crew members got out safely.

Moore says firefighters quickly controlled the fire, but it took them a while to completely put it out because it was burning in a bulkhead behind a commercial stove.

Moore says the ship’s home port is Kodiak, Alaska, and it was supposed to depart Tuesday.

The website for Lynden-based Alaskan Leader Fisheries says the Bristol Leader is the largest longliner built in the United States, and it has been one of the top producers in the Bering Sea. It catches fish on baited lines and processes fish on board.
