September 17th, 2010 · 5 Comments

Update: Our news partner The Seattle Times reports that no one was aboard the boat, and there were no injuries. Firefighters confined the fire to the deck level, and put it out in little more than an hour.

There was a fire aboard the 125-foot commercial fishing vessel Royal Enterprise tonight that saw a huge Seattle Fire Department response. Beginning at 7:43 p.m. more than two dozen SFD units plus fire and police boats were sent to the scene at 1341 Northlake Way. Tipster Joe told us at 8:17 p.m. that the fire was out and was knocked down quickly. He sent this video.

By the time we arrived at the scene, close to 8:30, there was little smoke but fire crews were working.

Puget Sound Maritime has more information on the fire and the trawler.
