Fire blackens 50-foot ship berthed in Seattle

SEATTLE -- The fire that broke out early Friday morning on a 50-foot commercial fishing boat moored at Fishermen's Terminal in Seattle was caused by a faulty electrical outlet in the galley.
The fire department estimates damage at $200,000.
Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore said firefighters used foam to control the fire within four minutes. He said a quick response prevented flames from spreading to other ships moored at the Port of Seattle facility.
No one was injured.
