Just after 3:00 a.m. on Monday November 2, Seattle firefighters responded to a fire in a two story home located at 700 North 103rd Street. When firefighters arrived they saw heavy smoke and flames coming from the door and windows of the house. All occupants got out of the home safely and there were no injuries. Due to the extensive amount of fire, firefighters took a defensive stance and fought the fire from the outside of the building.
Fire Investigators determined that the fire was accidental – caused by improperly discarded smoking materials. Damage was estimated at $320,000.
