Firefighters Respond to Fire at Seattle Waterfront Hotel

Seattle, Washington | Firefighters were dispatched today for a “Fire in Building” call at 2411 Alaskan Way.  Units dispatched:  Engines 2, 22, 25, 5, 8; Aid 2; Air9; Battalions 4, 5; Deputy1; Ladders 10, 4; Medics 10, 16; REHAB1; Safety2; Staff10 . [1200 PDT] and later Fireboat4 aka The Leschi staffed by Engine4 crew. [1211 PDT]

Fire was named, “Alaskan Command”. [1200 PDT]

Fire was deemed as a wall fire and appeared to be smoldering for awhile  to be coming inside the building, not from underneath the pier. [1212 PDT]

The fire was brought under control. Fireboat4/The Leschi was Code Green due to no access from the water side.  The RIT was also cancelled as well. [1214 PDT]

Traffic broadcasted between crews and Command staff eluded to this being a wall fire inside a 4-story wood frame hotel on the pier, approx 300×75. They were using tactics to battle the smoldering fire above the fireplace flue. [1221 PDT]

The wall was opened up by Firefighters checking for extension, which none was found.  Firefighters then used positive pressure ventilation on Floor 2. Smoke conditions at that time were light and hazy. In addition, several companies were above the chimney flue, on the interior and overhauling on the exterior. [1222 PDT]

A water supply was established, temporarily closing Alaskan Way to allow firefighters to lay their hose lines across the roadway. [1222 PDT]

The fireplace flue was being looked at above the exterior side. The interior looked good at this time. No additional resources were needed.

Firefighters brought the fire under control within 20 minutes into the incident. They were still busy with working to dig out hot spots. [1227 PDT]

Battalion 2 reported no heat and no char above the fireplace, above Floor 2. [1230 PDT]

About 30 minutes into the incident, Firefighters successfully reached a tap fire status or fire is out.  [1230 PDT]

After Fire Command called a tap fire, some fire units began going back into service. Some will remain on scene waiting for Marshal 5 [Fire Investigator] to arrive on scene. [1305 PDT]

Seattle Fire’s PIO was paged to contact B4. Sounds like this event is turning into some bigger than it appears. Glad to be able to hear how the call went. It almost seemed like we were there [again] in person. We so miss those days of fire buffing and taking care of firefighters on the fire ground. [1305 PDT]

All units were placed back in service. [1315 PDT]
