1:47 PM: A big SFD response is headed to Harbor Island Marina (1001 SW Klickitat Way, alongside the West Seattle Bridge). So far it’s described as a docked boat “taking on water.” Updates to come.
1:53 PM: Crews on scene have told dispatch that an 80-foot tugboat is “close to the water line” so they’re investigating whether it’s actually taking on water.
1:57 PM: They’ve found no evidence of that. The tugboat sits low when full of fuel, and it’s currently full of fuel, crews have reported to dispatch. But now they’re investigating a Coast Guard report that a different vessel might be taking on water at a “different terminal.”
2:06 PM: No evidence of that, so units are being dismissed. As for the original tug, one SFD responder radioed that fuel’s down to $3.40 a gallon so they just filled up with 40,000 gallons worth.
2:36 PM: Joe sent a photo of the fuel-laden, low-sitting tug.
