Operation to remove fuel from sunken boat in Seattle

Boat is said to have sunk with an estimated 150 gallons of fuel on board.





Updated on 10 Apr 2017 11:03 GMT

The US Coast Guard and Washington Department of Ecology pollution teams have been responding to a pollution threat caused by a boat fire that damaged two boats moored at the Shilshole Bay Marina in Seattle early Saturday morning.

Pollution responders from Coast Guard Sector Puget Sound and Ecology are overseeing the cleanup and removal of the pollution threat in the marina after one boat sank with an estimated 150 gallons of fuel on board.

Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Puget Sound were notified of the boat fire at approximately 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.

The crew aboard a 45-foot response boat 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 in the incident is "not considered a pollution threat", the Coast Guard said.
