According to a statement made by the United States Coast Guard, the fire was initially reported at approximately 3:30 a.m. on Sunday.
The three ships involved in the fire have been identified as the 57-foot fishing vessel Seaborn, 56-foot fishing vessel Pacific Lady and the 49-foot fishing vessel Julia Kae.
All three ships were docked near each other, and the fire seemingly spread from one to the next.
In their statement, the coast guard identified the capacity for fuel that each ship was equipped with. It said that an oil spills or sheening on the water "appears to be minimal, but boom has been deployed around two of the vessels."
No one was injured in the fires, and the ships were doused by emergency first responders. The coast guard says that the fire is still under investigation, and it is not currently known what caused the fire.
While the fire was contained and eventually extinguished, the boats sustained damage that will require sizable maintenance. The exact extent of the damage to all three boats is still being determined.
A spokesperson with Capital City Fire and Rescue wrote on social media about the fire, saying, "This not only impacts the livelihoods of the families that owned the boats but the community as a whole."
