UPDATE: Vehicle fire on 35th SW

4:17 PM: Haven’t yet heard which side it’s on but a car-fire response might make traffic tricky on 35th SW near Trenton for a while. Seattle Fire and Police are both headed that way.

4:28 PM: Photo added. 35th SW is shut down between Cloverdale and Trenton right now. No injuries.

5:04 PM: SFD has closed the call. We’ll be checking in a few minutes to see if the street has reopened.

5:27 PM: Fully open.

    Kudos to the quick acting Waste Management driver for blocking traffic and knocking the fire back a bit with an extinguisher!

    Must be southbound since I got this alert from metro at 4:30: “Expect service delays along southbound 35th Av SW between SW Cloverdale and SW Trenton Streets due to a blockage.”

    Road is open again, but the burned van is still in the road, awaiting removal.

      Everyone got out unscathed. Big thanks to the garbage man and 2nd man who appeared out of nowhere with an extinguisher!

    I was right behind it! Scary because I was afraid it would blow up! I called the fire department. I feel so bad for the owner.

Sorry, comment time is over.
