Richland employee Brian Johnson works Wednesday to repair the walkway and floating dock at the Snyder Street boat launch in Richland.

The floating dock was closed Tuesday after an 18-foot aluminum boat caught fire while tied to it.

City employees determined the metal dock and walkway are safe and the dock floats weren't damaged, according the Parks and Recreation supervisor Darrin Sweeney.

Workers made repairs to a couple welds and replaced damaged decking by the afternoon to get the dock reopened.

It will be repainted when the busy salmon fishing season ends, he said.
