Default "Arctic Dawn" - Early Deadliest Catch Boat, Burns In Seattle

The fishing vessel Arctic Dawn, known to many as a boat featured in early episodes of Discovery Channel’s hit show The Deadliest Catch, has burned while docked in Seattle.

The Arctic Dawn was a crab fishing vessel but since its Deadliest Catch days has been used for salmon fishing. At 2 a.m. Sunday emergency crews were called to the 100-foot boat to fight what became a three-alarm fire near the Ballard Bridge.

Because of the boat’s position from shore fighting the fire was made more difficult. Firefighters battled the blaze from a pier but also with a fire boat and a police boat. When they made their way on board they found no one in the parts of the boat that had been ablaze, which were mostly above the water line and confined to the deck and cabin. There were no injuries reported or sustained during the fight.

Responders were able to contain the fire before it spread to the Lady Kodiak, a vessel nearby. The Lady Kodiak was blackened but not damaged.

Over 100 firefighters were involved in extinguishing the fire, which took over an hour. Investigation into its cause has now begun.

Originally named the F/V Marla Jo, F/V Arctic Dawn was built in 1981.
