REHAB units were also tied in to the call bringing out REHAB units 2, 3, 302, 304 and 322.

Crews brought in aerials and specialized equipment working to put out the stubborn and fierce fire.

The 2-Alarm incident took place  in the 10700 block of 16th Avenue, S.W., Seattle, Washington.

The structure was verified to be vacant building once housing a former funeral home.

As it continued to burn in the area, roadway closures began impacting the White Center community streets, one block out from 16th Avenue S.W. to S.W. 107th Streets.  This would be a normal process as multiple lines would be laid on the streets and up connected to hydrants.  This is to avoid drivers or those from damaging or destroying fire hoses.

No reports of firefighter injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is unknown and is under investigation.

JULY 4 2020 | WASHINGTON WILDFIRE ACTIVITY

Today has been a very busy day for wildland firefighters across the Nation on this Independence Day.  It is also one day in a year where it is different that years  COVID19, a virus in a pandemic has many people cooped up and a lot of folks say they will be celebrating like they always have.

In Washington State, it is dry and there have been some very hot days but not compared to years past.  Please refer to your local fire department/agency’s bans or limited restrictions on fireworks.

Here is a list of wildfires that have occurred in the State of Washington today.  This is up to the date of this post.  NOTE:  It is not dark yet but soon-to-be. We will report on the wildfires from tonight’s activities.  We hope there won’t be but we know people are this time of year.

Wishing everyone a safe and sane rest of your 4th of July!
