2 boats destroyed by fire at Shilshole

Posted by Geeky Swedes on April 8th, 2017

Just after midnight, firefighters responded to Shilshole Bay Marina and discovered two vessels on fire several hundred feet down the M dock. They moved neighboring boats away from the fire, searched for any occupants and contended with windy conditions.
The fire was under control by 12:30, and one boat subsequently sank. Seattle Fire says there were no injuries. (Thanks Silver for the additional info! Photo by the Seattle Fire Department.)

    We live on the bluff directly over dock M. This photo is taken as the fire was being extinguished, before that the flames filled the air, so red, they were gobbling up the boat. And the fire engines filled the marina parking lot. Very un-real and disturbing way to wake up.
