Divers recovered two bodies from fire debris at a marina in Bellingham, Wash.

They have not been officially identified, but police told the media that the families of Jim Langei and Sterling Taylor have been notified.

They lived aboard a 42-foot boat that burned in a fire on March 30 at the Squalicum Harbor boathouse. Investigators believe the couple was trapped aboard a burning boat that sank during the blaze.

The fire destroyed much of a dock at the Bellingham marina. It was difficult to fight because of its size, and crews didn't have a fire boat, fire department assistant chief Roger Christensen said.

There was no early indication of the fire's cause, according to reports.

As many as 10 vessels were in the private boathouse at the marina at the Port of Bellingham when the fire was reported about 5:30 a.m. Flames had spread to several boats when firefighters arrived and eventually the roof collapsed. No firefighters were injured.

The boathouse and the vessels were a total loss.
