SEATTLE (AP) — 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 says firefighters used foam to control the fire within four minutes. He says a quick response prevented flames from spreading to other ships moored at the Port of Seattle facility.

No one was injured.
