MSO was assigned Medical Group along with REHAB2 and M-5.

E-12 was assigned RIT.

L-11 was first due and found smoke from the eves on Alpha and upon a 360* walk around, they found active fire in the daylight basement on the Charlie side.

There were some difficulties from the soft flooring on floor one and a hole found in the basement that led up to that same floor.  Command cautioned crews not to enter the front door alpha side due to the soft flooring making it very dangerous.  Crews were also pulled off the roof as Safety noticed there could be some softening on the roofing as well.

The fire was tapped at 2241 hours PST.  Crews worked on putting out hot spots throughout the structure.

Primary and secondary searches were conducted with nothing and no extensions found.

No cause is known at this time.

Public Health Shuts Down Illegal Food Business on Roadside is Unnamed

Renton, Washington | A King County Public Health Inspector shut down an unnamed food business operating on SR 900 and 148th Avenue on December 19, 2014, at 1600 hours, without having a valid business license. The reason for no name listed in the report is because there was no visible food business name listed on the vehicle.

The King County Public Health Department released this statement, “f the food business operator wishes to continue this type of operation, she will need to complete all of the requirements to obtain a mobile food establishment permit as described at http://1.usa.gov/1vhjPQu.”

At this time of this post, the food business still has not secured the proper permits or been approved by the King County Public Health Department to reopen their business as a mobile food truck.
