The Boston Fire Department reports firefighters responded to the Spirit of Boston, docked off Seaport Boulevard around 11 p.m. on Friday for a two-alarm fire below decks.

The department reports nobody was aboard the vessel at the time.

Both land-based firefighters and a BFD fire boat responded.

The same chain has a "Spirit of Norfolk" in Virginia. Last June, that shop caught fire while it was on a voyage with passengers aboard. The people were rescued, but the ship was a total loss.
