Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The City and Borough of Juneau Harbor Department is working to raise a fishing boat that sank on Tuesday morning.
According to Harbormaster Matt Creswell, the fishing boat Lone Star was reported to be sinking at around 5 a.m.
"We received a report that there was a vessel sunk at the crane dock between Aurora and Harris harbors, we refer to it as Fisherman's Terminal," Creswell said. "Harbor staff responded before 6 a.m. and found the large fishing vessel, a little over 40 feet I believe, named the Lone Star, was completely sunk in the crane docks."
Creswell added that the city immediately notified the U.S. Coast Guard and Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation. They responded to contain any fuel on board, and divers were working to raise the vessel on Tuesday afternoon.
