- Coastal Kitchen fire: Seattle Fire was quick to the rescue and Coastal Kitchen barely skipped a beat in its Sunday brunch service after a noontime fire brought a huge response but did little damage to the 15th Ave E restaurant. SFD was called to the 400 block at straight up noon to the report of light smoke coming from the back of the restaurant. Arriving crews found a fire burning and threatening the building’s roof but the flames were quickly knocked down as patrons from the cleared restaurant looked on from 15th Ave. There were no reported injuries and damage was mostly limited to the exterior of the building. Coastal was reported reopened and serving after about an hour of downtime. Seattle Police closed 15th Ave E to traffic during the response. The Seattle Fire Marshal was called to the scene to investigate and found that “a propane meat smoker located on the exterior back porch” ignited grease in the smoker catch basin and set off the fire. Damage was estimated to be $20,000.
