Boat-Marina Fire in Seattle

Here's yet another report of a boat fire here in the PNW. About 4am this morning a boat that was moored at the Jim Clark Marina on Harbor Island, West Seattle, exploded and burned inside its boat house. The fire spread to a neighboring boat house, but the fire boat Leschi arrived and saved the morning.

One boat and two boat houses lost..........

10:00 am update:
King 5 News in Seattle now reports that 3 boats and 3 boat houses were damaged or lost.
One boat burned to the waterline, one boat sank in 20 feet of water, and one boat was heavily damaged.

............. the perils and pit falls of mooring in a marina and in covered moorage!
