Zhe "Nooas Miller Freeman - R 223" was docked at New Westminster, B.C., on the Fraser River on June 24, 2017, waiting to be scrapped. The former American fisheries and oceanographic research vessel was in commission in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) fleet from 1975 to 2013. Prior to her NOAA career, she was in commission in the United States Fish and Wildlife Service's Bureau of Commercial Fisheries from 1967 to 1970 as BCF Miller Freeman. Miller Freeman became inactive in October 2010 and was decommissioned on March 29, 2013. Awaiting sale for scrapping, she was moored in Lake Washington in Seattle on May 6, 2013 when welding operations started an accidental fire in a storage locker aboard her. The Seattle Fire Department pumped carbon dioxide into the locker to extinguish the fire, and no injuries were reported. The "Nooas Miller Freeman" was sold at auction on Dec 5, 2013 for $337,550 (USD).
