A 32-foot boat that was leaking fluids sank in the Foss Marina this morning while tied to its slip, according to the Tacoma Fire Department.

Firefighters responded at 7:45 a.m. to 821 Dock St. and found the vessel listing. Crews stabilized the boat and used absorbent pads to contain the leaking fluids, which were not identified.

This is the second sinking incident in the last two months, fire spokesman Joe Meinecke said.
