1:02 PM: If you’re wondering why multiple Seattle Fire Department units rushed to West Seattle Athletic Club – it’s dispatched as a fire alarm having gone off, but described on radio communications as involving a suspected sprinkler-pipe problem. We have a crew checking it out.
1:16 PM: Christopher Boffoli reports that while an alarm bell is still sounding at the club, and staff confirms a broken pipe, they “say otherwise they are open and things are business as usual.”
1:46 PM: Adding a few more photos, including this one as a side note – the icy/salted SW Yancy hill just west of the club:
The call is now closed out on the 911 log, meaning SFD crews have departed.
