Seattle Firefighters Tap Garage Fire

UPDATE 2 (final) | APRIL 10 2021 2315 PT

Seattle firefighters were dispatched to a parking garage structure fire on John Street and Boren Avenue on Saturday night.

Firefighters had a difficult time when they first arrived on-scene in gaining access to the stairwell as it appeared to be down an embankment. After they gained access on the Bravo side, they were able to quickly egress and tap the fire, about twenty minutes into the incident.

A 400-foot extended line was brought in by crews and used the single line to put water on the fire.

It was said to be contained to a 130 x 20 rooftop bulkhead.

Units dispatched were A25, Air10, B2, B6, Dep1, E10, E2, E22, E25, E5, E8, L1, L10, L4, M1, M44, MAR5, REHAB1, SAFT2, and STAF10.

The cause of the fire is unknown and under investigation.
