Boat explosion in Ship Canal

Posted by Geeky Swedes on February 28th, 2009

My Ballard reader Jordan was driving over the Ballard Bridge at noon when he spotted thick smoke coming from Fremont. A boat exploded while it was docked at a refueling station on Westlake Ave., and witnesses say quick action by the Harbor Patrol averted what may have been a devastating marina fire.

Fremont Universe has the story. (Thanks Warren for the photo!)
