A burned chair sitting next to the curb gives visual evidence of a fire that occurred at a boarding house in the 2700 block of S. Washington Street last night.
And it appears to have been intentionally set, according to spokespersons for the Seattle Fire and Police departments.
The damage was approximately $11,000, described by the fire department as “mostly damage to contents, not the structure of the home.”
SPD spokesperson Mark Jamieson says that it is an active police investigation, and that detectives have information on a possible suspect in hand. He also said that last nights fire doesn’t appear to have any connection to the arson in Madrona from earlier in the week.
Just called 911 as soon as I seen this article (thanks CDN news). Came home from work today and noticed the recycling bin lid was up. My wife said she had come out earlier to throw stuff stuff in it and when she lifted the lid it was smoking.
