About 30 boats were destroyed in a fire on Lake Union near the Ship Canal Bridge early Wednesday morning.
The Seattle Fire Department (SFD) said the fire started at a dry storage facility along 701 NE Northlake Way around 2 a.m. Firefighters arrived to find the entire storage facility on fire. The flames reached as high as 70 feet and the fire could be seen miles away, according to firefighters on the scene.
Authorities originally said 42 boats were destroyed by the fire but revised their estimate after further analysis from fire investigators. A few boats near trailers were salvaged. The facility was used by people storing their boats for a longer period of time.
