Blaze Hits Building Two Blocks From Arson Fire
Another fire struck Burien Monday morning at 111-115 SW 154th, about two blocks from the tragic June 29th apartment arson, and according to the Burien/Normandy Park Fire Department:
This fire was confined to the balcony and building exterior, with some smoke damage inside.
The cause of the fire was accidental, and was started after hot ashes from a BBQ were placed in a paper bag on the deck.
Occupants evacuated without injury.
We happened to be driving nearby Monday morning when we saw numerous fire trucks (including at least one from Sea-Tac), pulled over, looked for the camera and realized it was still packed from last week’s vacation.
We returned this morning and took the above photo.
Some observations we made whilst on the scene:
- The fire was out by the time we arrived (around 9:40am)
- One of the victims of the June 29th arson fire was there, checking it out
- A woman drove up, parked and ran to the scene in a panic to see what happened (perhaps she lived there or nearby?)
