Two sailings on the Bainbridge Island-Seattle route were canceled Thursday afternoon after smoke was reported on the upper deck of the ferry M/V Puyallup.

The sailings from Seattle at 1:10 p.m. and from Bainbridge at 2:05 p.m. Feb. 13 were canceled so authorities could determine the source of the smoke.

Washington State Ferries said officials from the Seattle Fire Department and the Coast Guard have boarded the Puyallup and are conducting a safety check.

WSF spokesman Ian Sterling said initial reports indicated a faulty light fixture.

Sterling said sailings would resume once the light is replaced.
