What we’ve found out about this morning’s High Point car fire

Thanks to those who’ve sent photos of this morning’s car fire at 30th and Graham in High Point; these two are from Joe Moorman. Seattle Fire spokesperson Lt. Sue Stangl says their fire investigator was not called out, but police impounded the car.

So we checked with SPD spokesperson Officer Lauren Lovanhill, who says the car was not stolen – it was registered to a West Seattle address – but it was illegally parked, and that’s apparently why it was impounded. The report’s not in the system yet, so there’s no official information on the cause. No one was hurt in the fire, which was reported around 5:20 am.

    Interested in finding out what causes a car fire around 5:20 am.

    Some folks have jobs where they get home from work late (or early). I’d imagine overheating or some of the other same kinds of things cause fires at other times of the day also cause fires at 5:20am.

Sorry, comment time is over.
