The Associated Press

LA CONNER — All six boats that sank during the fire at the Shelter Bay Marina in La Conner have been pulled from the water.

Ecology Department spokeswoman Lisa Copeland also says 600 gallons of diesel were removed from a seventh vessel that was destroyed in Friday’s fire but did not sink.

The Skagit Valley Herald reports cleanup of an estimated 2,400 gallons of spilled oil and fuel may continue through Friday.

Copeland says there have been no reports of oiled birds or other impact to wildlife.

The property loss from the fire is estimated at more than $1 million.
