Apartment fire displaces three units in the Kenwood/Little Brook neighborhood

Seattle — This morning at 1:47 a.m., the Seattle Fire Department’s Fire Alarm Center received 911 calls reporting smoke and flames coming from the first floor of an apartment building in the 3100 block of NE 145th St. in the Kenwood/Little Brook neighborhood. Engine 39 was first to arrive and reported the fire was spreading upward to the second and third floor units directly above the fire room. They worked quickly to put water on the exterior portion of the fire while additional firefighters extended hose lines into the building and searched for occupants. Fortunately, all three units on fire were clear, and no injuries were reported.

By 3:05 a.m., the fire was extinguished, but residents of the three damaged units were displaced. The American Red Cross was requested to help provide temporary shelter.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
