Update: Short-lived fire call in North Admiral

3:25 AM: If you wondered about the sirens – Seattle Fire crews have responded to an address in the 1300 block of California SW (map) for a possible house fire.

3:37 AM: The call already has been closed/canceled (and a few minutes later, our crew arrived, verifying no one from SFD remained on scene).

    Yes we were as seemed to be a multitude of sirens going by. As usual, WSB right on top of it. Thanks.

      I can’t tell from radio communications what if anything it turned out to be – SFD has a house-fire call in another part of the city and that’s the only thing I’m hearing, but Patrick is headed up to this address to see.

      We have automated alerts that go off when 911 calls with certain words show up in the city system (particularly, “fire”)! Though I’d only been asleep about half an hour before this one was triggered. Co-publisher/chief photographer goes to sleep a lot earlier. (An important part of the alert system is texts/calls from the community … 206-293-6302 … we knew about this already when one came in, but that’s not always a given!) – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
