At approximately 8:54 p.m., last night, the Seattle Fire Department’s Fire Alarm Center received multiple 911 calls reporting smoke emanating from the windows and doors of a two-story commercial building located in the 8500 block of 14th Ave. S in South Park. Upon arrival at the scene, firefighters confirmed the reports made by callers and swiftly moved to contain the blaze.
As crews entered through the front door, they were immediately met with heavy smoke that impeded their visibility. Despite this, they pressed on and worked diligently to locate and extinguish the source of the fire. Fortunately, firefighters discovered the seat of the fire near the rear of the first floor and were able to quickly knock it down before it could spread further.
By 9:24 p.m., the fire was under control, and investigators arrived on scene to determine its cause. After conducting a thorough investigation, they ruled that the fire was accidental, likely caused by faulty electrical equipment. No injuries were reported as a result of this incident. The fire was fully extinguished by 9:42 p.m., leaving no damage to surrounding buildings or structures
