URGENT: Burien Residents With Condemned House Need Trucks/Help!


Print This Post  Email This Post

URGENT: We just received this email from Julie Vithoulkas – a Burien house is being condemned and its two prolific B-Town residents need trucks to help haul their stuff up before they are locked out of their home by the city:

Dane Johnson and Kathy Justin of the B/IAS project lost their house to the ocean last night and need help URGENTLY.

The city is only giving them a few hours to recover what they can from the house before it is condemned.

They need trucks capable of negotiating the road near their house, people capable of going up and down the hill from the road to the beach and lots of boxes and contractor bags.

People should dress for the weather and water and should only make the trip if they can get there safely.

Oh, they live at Maplewild Ave SW and 167th, right on the bluff.

The best way to help, we believe, is to just show up at the home with your truck, or email us as we’ll be on scene as well: [email protected].

We’ll be updating the blog with photos and more news as it develops, so please check back.

    Make sure they have a camera taking pictures of items they can’t recover for insurance purposes! Probably the last thing on their mind right now…

    Is it to late to help? I have a few 4 wheel drive vehicles and would be happy to help.
    I was out playing yesterday and never checked the blog,
