SEATTLE —

The Coast Guard says an engine room fire has been reported aboard a 314-foot fishing vessel off the Washington coast but the crew has apparently been able to control that blaze. The Arctic Storm reportedly carries 120 people.

Petty Officer 3rd Class Nate Littlejohn says there have been no reports of injuries.

Littlejohn said Monday evening that a sister ship was en route and plans to remove the crew from the Arctic Storm.

The spokesman says a tow vessel plans to bring the vessel to Aberdeen, Wash.

The engine room fire was initially reported as uncontrolled Monday afternoon when the vessel was about 30 miles west of Grays Harbor, Wash.

The Coast Guard immediately dispatched two helicopters and three lifeboats. Other boats in the area also responded to an agency call for assistance.
