UPDATE: Fire call in 9200 block 16th SW


9:31 PM: Big fire callout to the 9200 block of 16th SW (map) – but we’re hearing the first units to arrive reporting that the fire is tapped. More to come.

9:43 PM: We’ve just arrived in the area. 16th is mostly blocked at the scene, south of Barton, by SFD vehicles but what appears to be a civilian in a reflective vest is directing traffic so some is getting through.

9:45 PM: Our photographer’s been told it was a dryer fire – all out, no injuries, nobody evacuated, the fire crews will be leaving shortly.

    A good reminder. Clean out the lint traps on your dryer. And if the dryer takes more than one run to dry the clothes then the vent may be dangerously clogged. Get a kit from the hardware store or call your landlord. It may save your life. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
