A KING 5 viewer sent a  picture of a 128 foot fishing vessel on fire in Penn Cove off Whidbey Island.
  
The Coast Guard and two local fire departments responded to the call late Saturday night.
  
After attempts to put it out, firefighters decided to prevent the boat from sinking they needed to let the fire work itself out.
 
The vessel will likely be to shore on Monday.
