2:18 PM: Big Seattle Fire response en route to the 3400 block of SW Roxbury. More to come.

2:24 PM: 35th is closed south of Roxbury. This is believed to be a chimney fire.

2:40 PM: Adding photo. SFD confirmed to us at the scene that it was a chimney problem; no injuries, no evacuation required. Most of the units assigned to the call have been canceled, though Ladder 11 is still on site, with crews on the roof investigating.

2:44 PM: Ladder 11 has finished its investigation -”no heat signature” over any of the fireplaces, so it’s wrapping up at the scene too.

2:57 PM: The road’s reopening; Metro has texted that bus service is returning to its normal route.

  3. I was wondering what the heck was going on up there when I was on my way to West Wood Village today!! Thought it was best to stay out of the way & let the professionals take care of things! Glad everything is okay!
