Update: Chimney fire at condos across from Seacrest

5:33 PM: A condo building fire response across from Seacrest in the 1600 block of Harbor has slowed traffic in the area. The call originally went out as a chimney fire.

6:11 PM: The incident commander confirmed at the scene, that’s what it was. No major damage, no injuries, no unit(s) left uninhabitable. It was spotted by someone passing by, SFD says, who saw sparks and called it in. Harbor was blocked both ways when we got there around 5:25 but reopened a few minutes later. Thanks to those who texted us about it – the response didn’t look as big on the 911 log as it did at the scene, so we wouldn’t have gone without those firsthand reports.

  1. 37 was rerouted up Admiral. No stops on Harbor or Alki. Was a long cold walk home.

  2. Thanks to whoever called the fire dept, we appear to have a chiminey caused fire up on the roof of our condo building (1639 Harbor Crest).
    So far damage is limited to the roof area and the unit with the fire in their fireplace.
    Good reminder to check your chiminey’s out for build-up every year, if you use a fireplace. Not sure when our building was last serviced…
    Thank-you to who ever called 911 – could have gotten much worse… God Bless!
