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.
