Authorities say it could be several more days before they can determine the cause of a fire at the Port of Edmonds Marina that destroyed two boats, anabolics
sinking one of them.

The fire was reported at about 4 a.m. on Saturday, capsule
Dec. 31 by a janitor working in a nearby business. When firefighters arrived shortly after, medical
two powerboats moored next to each other were engulfed in fire, with flames shooting 50 feet into the air. The boats were on the south side of P dock, according to an observer.

No one was aboard either of the boats, but a couple staying on their boat further down the dock had to be rescued by a fire boat. The couple was treated for smoke inhalation and later released.

Leslie Hynes, public information office for Snohomish County Fire District 1, said the two boats involved were both Bayliners, a 4588 and a 51-foot model. The two boats were removed from the water the day of the fire and hauled to a nearby boatyard, where investigators are continuing their work.
