Pollution responders from Coast Guard Sector Puget Sound and Ecology will oversee the cleanup and removal of the pollution threat in the marina after one boat sank with an estimated 150 gallons of fuel onboard.
Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Puget Sound were notified of the boat fire at about 12:09 a.m., by the Seattle Fire Department. Firefighters aboard the fireboat Leschi extinguished the fire and placed containment boom around the sunken boat.
A boatcrew aboard a 45-foot Response Boat–Medium from Coast Guard Station Seattle enforced a safety zone around the marina while firefighters controlled the situation.
The owner of the sunken boat and his insurance company have hired Global Divining and Salvage to remove the fuel onboard and salvage the vessel. The other vessel involved is not considered a pollution threat.
No injuries were reported from the incident.
