Boat fire injures one in Seabeck

Vessel owner transported to Harrison Medical Center with injuries.

A fire aboard a commercial fishing vessel injured a man in Seabeck on Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Witness Jerry Anderson, owner of Seabeck Pizza on the marina, said the vessel was docked when it caught fire. He said the victim came to him for assistance exiting the pier, and suffered burns on his face and hands.

The victim was transported to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton for treatment.

Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue received a report of a boat on fire at 12:14 p.m., according to division chief Brian Danskin. When crews arrived, the fire had fully engulfed the boat, Danskin said.

The fire did serious damage to the approximately 30-foot vessel, which was partially submerged following the incident. It was chained to the dock at forward and aft, witnesses said.

Anderson said the man, whose name he did not know, had been fishing for salmon.

A Harrison Medical Center spokesperson said the victim was in stable condition Tuesday afternoon.
