1:55 PM: A big Seattle Fire Department callout in the past few minutes to Allstar Fitness in North Delridge (map) is mostly being canceled right now – per the scanner, “small fire, reported ‘out’ by occupant.” We’re still en route to check on the situation.
2:16 PM UPDATE: Adding a photo. Fire crews say there was a “very small fire” inside and that triggered the sprinkler system; patrons are being kept outside right now while the water from that is being cleaned up.

5:13 PM UPDATE: We asked Seattle Fire spokesperson Kyle Moore about the cause: “We responded to a laundry room fire at the location. The caller said flames were visible. Someone extinguished the fire before Engine 27 arrived. Fire investigators determined the cause was accidental, a chemical reaction. Investigators estimate damage at $1000 to contents and $1000 to structure.”
