Smoky fire damages North Capitol Hill home

IMG_0008Seattle Fire raced to the scene of a Sunday afternoon house fire on 11th Ave E near Seattle Preparatory School.

The single family home was spewing yellowish gray smoke in the callout just before 3:45 PM as firefighters arrived at the scene and went to work to extinguish the blaze inside. Less than 10 minutes later, fire units reported the fire was knocked down.IMG_0034

There appeared to be no injuries related to the fire. The fire marshall was at the scene to investigate and determine a cause and damage estimate. The home’s pets still being searched for following the response. UPDATE: Seattle Fire says no update on cause yet but that the fire did $100,000 in damage.

The three-bedroom home in one of the more expensive areas of the Hill is worth around $700,000 according to real estate estimate web sites.

  1. Thank you Celia for your concern. Unfortunately one pampered cat was under the bed that was torched and did not survive. Neighbors located and saved the other one, much to my relief.

    One interesting thing is that my older son was in the DC area at the time and saw the Blog before I even knew about the fire.

    I feel much gratitude for the wonderful Fire response and support from my neighbors through all of this.
