U.S. Open TV audience watches boathouse burn in Tacoma, WA

The third round of the U.S. Open yesterday (Saturday) involved smoke and fire. Fox Sports TV coverage diverted from the action momentarily to a boathouse burning at the Narrows Marina at the south end of 19th Street in Tacoma, Washington. The U.S. Open was being played at Chambers Bay in University Place, a few miles from the fire.
