Sailboat fire quickly extinguished at Shilshole

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!)
