UPDATE: Fire call on Dumar Way SW

6:33 PM: Seattle Fire sent a “full response” to the 7200 block of Dumar Way, near Delridge/Orchard [map]. We just got there (thanks to the person who called! we had missed it while out on something else) and some crews are packing up. Here’s what they tell us: The fire was confined to the house’s hot tub – how it caught fire is still being figured out. No injuries; Dumar is blocked in the area (between 16th and Orchard).

7:29 PM: The road is open again.

    It smells smoky and hazy in Gatewood. Is that from this or fires on the west coast?

    There’s a strong smell of burning plastic down by the 5400 block of Beach Dr. Could the fire be the cause?

    A ton of thick smoke fire smell near high point. Related?

      Nope. That’s the wildfire smoke blowing in from elsewhere – California, Siberia, BC have been cited by weather experts. This was NOT a big fire at all.

Sorry, comment time is over.
