The fire was reported to 911 just after 11 PM. Flames shot from the building as crews arrived to fight the blaze in the 1950s-style, 10-unit building just north of Cal Anderson Park and a block from Capitol Hill Station.

Crews quickly brought the fire under control and it was reported extinguished about 20 minutes after the initial dispatch.

Seattle Fire says it is investigating to determine a cause and damage estimate for the blaze.

UPDATE: Seattle Fire says the incident was caused by items catching fire near a heater. Damage was estimated at $60,000.

I met the resident of this unit when I first moved to Seattle. You say no injuries reported but the damage to her unit must be huge. (Dear resident: I hope you and your pets are doing alright)
