One of the residents says there were 3 fires in 2013.  No specifics other than stating there have been this many and unhappy about that. (Yelp)

The internet does indicate there was a large fire in 2013 and caused moderate to significant damage to units in one building (unknown #) on all five floors and some others were damaged by water/smoke damage.  There was a restoration project that occurred in 2013, to help residents be able to move back into their homes.

A large fire prompted many resources to respond from Redmond, Kirkland, Bellevue and Redmond to the community.  The cause was due to smoldering wood removed from a fireplace and placed in a box, leaving it unattended at a ground-floor unit.

Thankfully, no one was home at the time.  Five engines, 1 Ladder truck, 2 Command vehicles responded.  The fire was extinguished within 15 minutes. (Redmond Patch, 1/28/2012)

60-01 Fire Status

The fire was under control around 1800 hours this evening.  There were no human injuries or fatalities but several pets in one unit were lost.

The cause is unknown at this time.

We are waiting for the Fire Investigator’s report.
