The 117 meter long ro-ro passenger ferry Yakima caught fire while berthed in Friday Harbor, Washington. The fire started in the vessel’s engine room by a short in an electrical panel. Smoke from the fire was spotted by a deckhand and the crew quickly responded and extinguish the blaze in a few minutes. No reports of injuries. All the passengers on board safely evacuated. A tug arrived later the same day and towed the ferry from the berth. Authorities have launched an investigation into the incident.
