Puget Sound Key & Lock arson update: Damage, donations

Updated information just in from the Fire Department: SFD investigators have finished their work on the Puget Sound Key and Lock arson (6016 California; map), and the criminal investigation is now in the hands of Seattle Police. According to SFD, damage to the structure is estimated at $50,000, damage to the business, $40,000. The arson hotline – as posted on the window in our video above and our photos in earlier coverage – is 800/55-ARSON, with a $10,000 reward offered, but you can also call 911 with any tips. In addition, the unstoppable WSB Forum members are already organizing a bank account for donations to help business owner Michael Dein (who told WSB this morning he has no fire insurance) — as well as a possible fundraising event — check here for the latest.

    I set up a donation account at the junction branch of Wells Fargo- account # 5358011681. Donations can be made at any Wells Fargo branch with that account #. Please someone have the owner get in touch with me so I can have him added to the account and myself removed. vanmatrejennifer@gmail.com / 206-715-3026

    I am going to go back down there at some point this afternoon but I have another story to go out on first – if I see him down there I will check if anyone has reached him – if anyone is in the Morgan Junction area sooner, just look for the guy in the green cap.
