SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle fire officials say two boats caught fire and sank at a marina, and two other boats were damaged.

Fire spokeswoman Corey Orvold says crews had trouble moving heavy hoses into the area around the marina on Harbor Island, but were able to fight the Tuesday night fire from land and with a fireboat. The Seattle Times ( ) reports that no one was believed to be on the boats, and no injuries have been reported.

Bystander Stefan Krzeszowski says he saw crews pull one burning boat out of its slip. He says he watched as the boat then "burned all the way down and sank."

A portion of nearby railroad tracks was temporarily closed, and access to nearby docks was being restricted.
