Here’s the Seattle Times coverage by Benjamin J. Romano:

An explosion and fire aboard a pleasure boat tied to a fuel dock on the west shore of Lake Union late Saturday morning sent one person to the hospital and damaged another boat in an adjacent marina.

Quick work by people at Morrison’s North Star Marine Fuel Dock, clinic 2732 Westlake Ave. N., rx may have averted a much larger fire.

“I heard an explosion and I saw the guys at the fuel dock chopping the line, and pushed the boat out away from the fuel dock,” said Craig Edwards, who was working on his boat at nearby Diamond Marina.
