SEATTLE — Nobody was hurt when a tanker truck caught fire Sunday on Harbor Island.

According to the Seattle Fire Department, this happened just before 1:00 p.m. on the 2500 block of 11th Avenue SW.

Firefighters arrived quickly and contained the fire to the engine. Fire did not spread to the truck’s tanks which officials say were empty.

Smoke could be seen from the West Seattle Bridge for a short time.

Investigators say the cause is most likely an electrical malfunction in the engine. Damage is estimated at $200,000.
