Seattle fire crews putting out ship fire in Ballard

Seattle firefighters are putting out a galley fire aboard a 110-foot fishing trawler in Ballard this morning.

Firefighters were dispatched to the 600 block of Northwest 41st Street around 10:15, said Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore. The crew made it off safely and there were no reported injuries.

Moore said people should expect heavy smoke in the Ballard area for a few hours. He said it often takes a long time to put out ship fires because firefighters are battling flames inside a “huge steel structure.”
