Firefighters were able to quickly take care of a house boat fire by the Ballard Fred Meyer earlier this afternoon, according to Seattle Fire Department Spokesman Kyle Moore.
SFD received a call at 1:10 p.m. When they got there, at 1:14 p.m., the house had heavy smoke and flames coming from it. But firefighters were able to respond quickly, knocking it down by 1:20 p.m.
No one was on board the boat when SFD got there and therefore there were no injuries. Currently a fire investigator is determining the cause and damage. We will provide an update when we hear more.
