Update: Small boat fire by Alki Point, put out by those on board

ORIGINAL 6:31 PM REPORT: A large Fire Department response has headed for Alki Point in response to a reported boat fire. So far, though, they’re not finding anything.

6:41 PM UPDATE: Per scanner, the Coast Guard has found a boat that had a small fire “put out by occupants.”

7:22 PM UPDATE: Beach Drive Blog has published a photo of what looks like the boat in question getting a tow or escort.

7:30 PM UPDATE: Our crew is back at HQ and we’ve added their photo atop the story. No injuries reported in all this, by the way.

      Yeah, added that. Fireboat sure made tracks fast from downtown.

    I saw two amall boats and a Coast Guard vessel in close proximity just north of Lincoln Park but could not tell what was going on. Last seen the Coast Guard was following the small boat south.

      Beach Drive Blog has a pic; adding the link to story. Our crew was just getting one when we redirected them to check out Highland Park Way tree-down trouble …

Sorry, comment time is over.
