Crab Boat Catches Fire at Seattle Port

The ARCTIC DAWN caught fire while moored in Ballard early Monday morning. The 100 foot Alaska crab boat had been previously featured on the Deadliest Catch television series. One crewman was aboard the vessel at the time and was able to escape the fire without injury. Nearly one hundred firemen responded to the three alarm fire. The fire involved the superstructure of the vessel but did not appear to affect the lower decks. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
