Update: Fire Department fights boat fire at marina in South Park
10:16 PM: The big Seattle Fire Department response right now (10:16 pm Sunday) to the waterfront end of Dallas is for a report of smoke from what’s only described so far as “a boat smaller than 50 feet.” More as we get it.
10:21 PM UPDATE: It’s a 40-foot boat “smoking, 800 feet out on the pier,” according to the scanner. It’s now being upgraded to a “full response,” which means you’ll see more units arriving until they get it under control – they’re calling for two additional units.
10:33 PM UPDATE: Crews have just reached the source of the smoke – no flames visible – they say it’s a 35-foot vessel, with “light smoke” coming from under a tarp.
10:41 PM UPDATE: They still can’t figure out what’s burning, according to scanner traffic, but they have hoses rolled out to the end of the pier and are ready to extinguish whatever they find. They are having space issues, too, in terms of getting any additional help to the end of the pier.
10:50 PM UPDATE: The fire has been reported “under control” and SFD is asking for its investigator to come out.
11:10 PM UPDATE: More of the engines assigned to this are being dismissed – engines 37 and 13, the most recent.
11:40 PM UPDATE: An update = it’s described as a 35=foot wooden pleasure craft, with “flames and smoke within the craft” but the fire is now described as “tapped.” We should be able to get a wrap-up on this – including the fire’s cause – from SFD’s public-information officer in the morning, if not sooner, and we’ll add it here.
