Neighborhood 911

At 6:23 last night, no fewer than 16 fire department units were dispatched to 70th and Ravenna Avenue NE in response to a fire at the multi-unit building on the NW corner of the intersection.

At approximately 8:00 pm, when we were coming home, there were still a couple units at the scene, including a ladder truck parked in the traffic circle.  A brief walk-by by yours truly revealed that the fire was out, many charred pieces of furniture littered the sidewalk, and more pieces were being removed by fire fighters.

Here’s a shot of the scene this morning:

Work has already started on the unit, which I think is a good sign.  As multi-resident buildings go, we’ve often admired this one as it blends in so well with the surrounding neighborhood of single-family homes.

If anyone has any more information on what happened or what anyone can do to help, drop us a tip.

UPDATE: There’s a bit about the fire on the Seattle P-I’s Seattle 911 blog.  No injuries, which is was I was wondering about and hoping for.
