UPDATE: Small fire at 9222 Delridge Way SW, where 1 person died in 2014 fire

5:19 PM: A big Seattle Fire response is arriving at a vacant building in the 9200 block of Delridge Way SW, where they’re finding smoke but so far no obvious source.

5:27 PM: Most of the responding units have been canceled.

5:37 PM: Photo added. SFD says the fire started in a trash can or similar receptacle outside the house. Firefighters also confirm a fire here a few years ago – (update) our archives show one person died in that fire in June 2014.

5:53 PM: The 2014 fire also killed four puppies, as noted in a followup. We’re checking records for the address, 9222 Delridge Way SW, and have found only two items, both 2015 complaints about alleged unspecified violations of the city’s vacant-building ordinance.

    Why is this vacant, nuisance building still standing? Come on City of Seattle!

      This one doesn’t even have a redevelopment proposal, unlike the thrice-burned one not far away on 16th SW, which, thanks for the indirect reminder, I need to check on today. We drive by every few days and as of two days ago, no sign of the backhoe.

Sorry, comment time is over.
