SEATAC – The cause of a four-alarm blaze that destroyed the vacant Angle Lake School on Saturday won’t be known for two or three more days, said Terri-Ann Betancourt, a spokeswoman for the Port of Seattle, which owns the property.

A crane will be brought to the site early in the week to aid in the investigation.

The building, in the 19200 block of 28th Avenue South, erupted in flames shortly before 6 pm Saturday, requiring a massive response by local firefighters.

Crews from Tukwila, Burien, Kent, the Port of Seattle and King County Fire District 20 joined firefighters in SeaTac to battle the blaze.

The roof of the builiding collapsed about 30 minutes after the first units arrived.

The Port of Seattle bought the property a few years ago with plans to demolish the building and use the land for airport operations,” said Betancourt.

Neighbors say the building has been boarded up for several years.
