SEATTLE (AP) -- A 91-foot tour boat went up in flames early Friday at Seattle's Fisherman's Terminal.

The Coast Guard says no one was injured, and Seattle firefighters prevented flames from spreading to other vessels.

The fire was reported about 1 a.m. aboard the Safari Spirit, part of Seattle-based American Safari Cruises, which operates four yachts on Alaska cruises.

KOMO Radio reports the captain and a crewmen were sleeping on board when they were awakened by the noise of the fire. They sounded the alarm and got off.

The fire burned for about four hours.

A Coast Guard boat helped deploy an absorbent boom for pollution.
