    Lots of sirens. Woke me up. Checked this blog and info was there. Sirens still continuing down Delridge

    I live just a block away from Thistle. Haven’t heard a response like this in a long time. And Sirens are still coming. ;Hopefully everyone is safe.

      SFD confirmed no injuries reported. Fire’s out and now they’re starting to dismiss units.

    Geeze what a response. Next time you see crime add fire to the story. Maybe it will help get some attention

    Glad everyone is safe.  Hopefully the family will be ok. So many sirens…woke us up. So grateful they made it before anyone got hurt.

    I live across the street from the apartment building. I didn’t hear the sirens and my kids slept through the sirens also. I woke up at 1:30 seeing the lights flashing in my livingroom.

    I’m glad no one was injured but can they please turn down the sirens at night?!

      Or maybe ONLY turn them on when traffic needs to be aware of the need to move to the side so first responders can get by? 1am on Delridge isn’t exactly bumper to bumper traffic so a simple chirp or two should be enough to notify people to move. No need to blare the siren when they’ve got a clear path ahead of them ya know? 

Sorry, comment time is over.
