The Honolulu Fire Department extinguished a fire aboard an 80-foot long-line fishing vessel this afternoon moored at Pier 38 in Honolulu Harbor.
Firefighters responded to a report of smoke and flames coming out of the front of the Elizabeth fishing boat at 1:53 p.m., said fire Capt. David Jenkins.
Nine fire companies with 35 firefighters worked to first douse the vessel with water, then deployed compressed-air foam to put out the blaze on the boat’s interior, Jenkins said.
The fire was extinguished at 3:47 p.m. It was reported that five adult males were on the boat at the time of the fire. No injuries or fuel spills were reported, Jenkins said, and the boat continues to float. The cause of the fire and cost of the damages were unavailable.
