A float plane with engine problems made a safe landing south of Edmonds and had to be towed to the beach by a fire rescue boat on Saturday.
 
The captain from Kenmore Air notified 911 dispatchers about 1:51 p.m. that the airplane had made a water landing and needed to be towed to shore, said Leslie Hynes, public information officer for Snohomish County Fire District 1.
 
Two passengers and a pilot were on board the plane. There were no injuries.

Fire District 1’s rescue boat, based at the Edmonds Marina, towed the float plane to Marina Beach.
