By the time the fire boats arrived the boat was engulfed in flames.

Reportedly, the two people on board jumped off the boat and were not harmed. They were picked up by a private vessel.

The burning vessel sent a plume of black smoke high into the sky. It burned completely and then sank.

The KCSO marine unit went out the next day and after assessing with the state Department of Ecology, determined there was no immediate environmental threat.
