Fishing Vessel Ablaze in Port of Tacoma

A significant fire erupted aboard F/V ALEUTIAN FALCON in the Port of Tacoma overnight and into the morning of February 18, 2021.  The vessel is said to be 356 feet in length and docked at Pier 12.  It is operated by Trident Seafoods.

Firefighters continued to fight the blaze throughout the morning.  Officials voiced concern about 48,000 gallons of diesel and an undisclosed amount of ammonia stored onboard.  So far, no injuries have been reported, but the situation is developing.

With offices in Bellingham and Seattle, WA, Anderson Carey Williams & Neidzwski, PLLC has represented commercial fishermen for over forty years.  The firm’s admiralty lawyers have a unique understanding of the dangers faced by mariners in Puget Sound and aboard commercial fishing vessels.
