    Coast Guard, HFD respond to vessel fire at Pier 16

    HONOLULU — The Coast Guard and local agencies are responding to a report of a boat fire at Pier 16, Thursday.

    As of 2:11 p.m. the fire is reportedly extinguished and the vessel appears to be stable.

    At 1:30 p.m., Sector Honolulu watchstanders received a report from Harbor Patrol of the commercial fishing vessel Saint Peter on fire at Pier 16.

    Customs and Border Protection personnel were conducting a routine inspection of the vessel and asked the crew to muster on the pier when a stove burner was reportedly left on in the galley, presumably causing the fire.

    Coast Guard Station Honolulu launched a 45-foot Response Boat-Medium crew to the scene, and Sector Honolulu issued a Marine Safety Information Broadcast. Two pollution responders are also on site assessing the scene.

    Honolulu Fire Department was on scene and extinguished the fire while the crew of the Tug Freedom also assisted.

    The vessel has a maximum capacity of 8,000 gallons of diesel, 50 gallons of lube oil and three marine batteries. There have been no reports of pollution or injuries.
