Sailboat fire quickly extinguished at Shilshole

Posted by Geeky Swedes on February 27th, 2011

A large response of firefighters rushed to a sailboat fire at Shilshole Marina just before noon. The fire was contained to a single sailboat — it started in the engine compartment — and firefighters were able to knock down the flames quickly.

My Ballard reader David sent us this photo of fire crews responding to the I dock. As is customary, dispatchers send a huge group of firefighters to boat fires in marinas, as flames can quickly spread to other boats. In this case, 6 engines were among the dispatch, as well as a fire boat and the Coast Guard. For more details on the dispatch, the My Ballard forum covered it here as it happened. (Thanks David and Silver!)

    You meant engine “compartment”, not engine “department”, right?

    The Swedes corrected the error. It definitely said “department”.
