A large tree caught fire on 1st Ave South on Wednesday, May 8, on 1st Ave S. between SW 168th and SW 170th Streets (map below).

The fire most likely started at the bottom of the tree, then quickly ignited the crown.

It was quickly extinguished by a single engine from the Burien/Normandy Park Fire Department.

Here’s some dramatic raw footage of the blaze courtesy Candace Krull, with a slow-motion replay at the end:

According to Fire Chief Mike Marrs, the call came in as a brushfire, and there were no witnesses to the cause.
