    A barge under tow crashed into a private waterfront home in Gig Harbor, Washington on Monday. No injuries were reported.

    Coast Sector Puget Sound was alerted to the incident by Pierce County dispatch. The unmanned gravel barge was under tow by the towing vessel Island Chief when it collided with several privately-owned docks and residences, the Coast Guard said.

    The Coast Guard reports that initial findings indicate that the master of the towing vessel fell asleep while navigating the vessel.

    The barge was not carrying cargo at the time of the incident and was pulled free by the tug under its own power. Neither were seriously damaged and the tug and barge returned to Seattle for further investigation and inspection.
