Dozens of firefighters responded by land and by water to a fire on a large fishing trawler at Fishermen’s Terminal just after 7 this morning.
Seattle Fire says there are no injuries.
The fire was burning below deck, which made access difficult. Hoses had to be run down the long dock. But firefighters had the fire under control a short time later.
The boat is the “Ocean Explorer“, a 145-foot long fishing trawler based out of Seattle.
Several fireboats, 9 engines and 4 ladder trucks were dispatched to the fire, a massive response from Ballard and surrounding neighborhoods.
