WEST SEATTLE — Firefighters battled a crane fire Thursday morning in West Seattle, officials said, and evacuated nearby structures.

The Seattle Fire Department tweeted about the crane fire at 8:30 a.m.

A short time later, firefighters said the crane fire was under control.  It was not known if evacuations were still in place.

Firefighters told Q13 FOX News that the crane was working on a construction site in the area. The crane came in contact with a power line, which caused a spark. Diesel in the truck then ignited, firefighters said.

No one was hurt in the incident.
