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!)

They’d offensive line issues all last season, and will have a new offensive coordinator in Ben Mc – Adoo, who was simply the quarterback coach in Green Bay.

    It doesn’t look like catching the 49ers (and their stable of quality quarterbacks) is in the cards this year. The league slowly made its way to the United States in 1924. For further help from DNF Security to calculate storage requirements use.
