Update: Alarm/pipe break brings SFD to West Seattle Athletic Club

(Photos by Christopher Boffoli for WSB)
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.

    This false alarm disappointed a few families who showed up at the 38th and Alaska fire station around 12:45pm for the open house that was supposed to last til 1pm. Totally legit that the station would close for a call, less cool that the call was a false alarm.

Sorry, comment time is over.
