OSV Helps Put Out Boat Fire In Texas



An offshore supply vessel assisted the U.S. Coast Guard in responding to a boat fire Saturday near the Houston Ship Channel entrance in Galveston, Texas.

Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston command center watchstanders were notified at 8:37 a.m. by the crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Daniel Tarr stating they were responding to a blaze aboard a 25-foot pleasure craft with three people aboard.

The Daniel Tarr crew arrived on scene and began extinguishing the fire alongside the Erin T, a 33-meter U.S.-flagged offshore supply vessel. A good Samaritan safely removed the passengers from the vessel, and no injuries’ were reported.

Once the fire was extinguished, a Station Galveston 45-foot Response Boat–Medium boat crew remained on scene to assess potential pollution.

“The quick actions and teamwork of the Daniel Tarr crew and good Samaritans resulted in a safe outcome for the passengers involved,” said Chief Warrant Officer Brooke Milstead, command duty officer. “We encourage all mariners to remain vigilant and provide assistance when safely possible.”
