At 11:28 p.m. a 911 call came into dispatchers at the Fire Alarm Center reporting smoke from a third floor apartment of a four-story complex located in the 800 block of Queen Anne Avenue North. Engine Company 8 ran a hose line to the 3rd-story unit and was able to contain the flames to the kitchen area of the unit. It took crews 10 minutes to knock down the fire. Smoke form the fire did fill the hallways of the complex forcing the evacuation of the residents.
The investigator is classifying the fire as an accidental fire. The damage estimate is $20,000 to the contents and $20,000 to the structure.
There were no injuries.
The American Red Cross was called out to assist two residents including the one resident of the fire unit and another resident of the unit above the fire.
