Vessel Fire Sends Emergency Crews to Coastal Dock
Monday, February 04 2013
A fire aboard the 180' F/V Alaskan Lady over the weekend sent emergency crews down to the Coastal Transportation dock, and one person to the clinic. Fire chief Abner Hoage says a leak in an oxy-acetylene welding hose likely caused the fire. It was quickly extinguished by the ship’s crew using onboard fire fighting equipment. Hoage says city fire crews helped ventilate the vessel, and provided transport for a crew member suffering from smoke inhalation.
