See the map at 911Seattle.com.
UPDATE, Sunday afternoon: The Seattle Fire Department says the cause of the fire was hot cooking oil that a speeding boat caused to be spilled. The oil ignited.
Damage to the boat is estimated at $250,000.
KING5.com has video of the fire shot by a local resident.
ORIGINAL POST: Seattle Fire and Harbor Patrol crews battled a blaze on a 40-foot pleasure boat at a Northlake Way marina that began about 8:30 p.m. Saturday.
According to a Seattle Fire Department spokesperson, the boat had been docked at the marina. Emergency crews first towed the boat into Lake Union and then towed it back closer to shore as the smoke and flames were brought under control a little after 9 p.m. The fire was confined to the single boat.
The SFD spokesperson said that the boat was a live aboard. The woman who was living on the boat was evaluated by Seattle Fire Department medics but had no injuries. The Red Cross has been called in to assist her.
Cause of the fire is not yet known.
Smoke poured from the boat as it sat in the channel off Wards Cove. Later, flames erupted from the vessel and it was noticeably listing.
The SFD response included Seattle Fireboat Engine One and a large number of land-side emergency crews.
Several residents from the area came down to Wards Cove to watch.
According to the Seattle Times, the Coast Guard has been notified about the fire due to the potential for pollution.
UPDATE: This post has been updated since it was first published. Details about an online support fund have been added.
The folks at Cupcake Royale have more information on how to help one of their managers, Jaime, and her daughter, Hannah, who lost most of their posessions when their apartment on Minor Ave. E. burned on early Tuesday morning.
A Google spreadsheet shows you what the family needs, everything from clothes to food for their dog, Pearl.
The main need the family has now is for money. Folks at Cupcake Royale have started an online fund where you can donate. They've raised $985 so far. Click here to logon and donate.
The family is currently living in a hotel. The biggest need is money to help them get into a new place to live. You can donate any amount at the Capitol Hill Cupcake Royale, 1111 E. Pike.
UPDATE: This post has been updated since first published. Details from the Seattle Fire Department have been added.
The Seattle Fire Department was out in force just before 2 a.m. Tuesday morning for an apartment fire in the 2200 block of Minor Avenue E., which a Seattle Fire Department spokesperson says started in a couch that was too close to a baseboard heater. They estimate the damage to the apartment at $60,000.
Our sister news site, Capitol Hill Seattle, says that the apartment belonged to Cupcake Royale's Capitol Hill store manager Jaime, and her daughter, Hanna. They weren't at home when the fire broke out and they are OK. Their dog, Pearl, is also OK. An e-mail from Jody Hall at Cupcake Royale says the family "pretty much lost everything."
Staff at Cupcake Royale are collecting money to help Jaime and Hanna get back on their feet. The collection point is the Capitol Hill Cupcake Royale at 1111 E. Pike.
The SFD spokesperson says the first units to respond found that a neighbor was already on the scene with a hose trying to put out the flames. They checked the neighbor for any smoke inhalation but the person was fine.
The large response to the fire is standard practice for an apartment fire, the SFD spokesperson said, because of the potential for rescues.

Several news organizations are reporting on a fire at a Lakeview Boulevard apartment earlier this morning.
A top-floor unit in the building at 1034 Lakeview Blvd. E. caught fire. CapitolHillSeattle.com reports that "SFD tells us the fire was contained to one unit but that there is extensive smoke and water damage to the building -- and a big hole was cut in the roof to fight the flames. No word on how many residents displaced."
CHS has more information and a photo.
As a clarification: Some news reports are saying that the fire was in Eastlake, although we generally consider Lakeview to be on Capitol Hill.
It was a relatively quiet week for crime in Eastlake. The reports from Aug. 16 to 23 include:
