    I’m glad no one was hurt, but this house is a constant problem. For anyone who doesn’t know…. That photo shows what the house looks like all the time. That’s not fire related. We can no longer walk down our street with our children and dogs because of this house. There is ALWAYS broken glass in the street and aggressive dogs that are loosely leashed. Sometimes just a scary dog in a car with windows down. We very rarely see the people who live here, but the few times that I’ve attempted to engage them in friendly conversation I’ve been ignored.

    I’m guessing you may have already complained to the city about this place, but if not:Make a Property or Building Complaint – SDCI | seattle.govYou can also contact Jennifer Danner jennifer.danner@seattle.gov (she is Southwest Precinct Crime Prevention Coordinator) and may have suggestions as to how the city can help. I’ve been working with her on that “vacant” house north of you on 24th that seems to be occupied by squatters.

    That house was pending sale in late July. Hopefully it will be cleaned up soon. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
