UPDATE: Fire callout in The Junction

9:50 PM: Big SFD callout to the 4730 California SW apartments in The Junction. They’re reporting “light smoke in the hallway” on the third floor. They’re downsizing the response – calling it a small kitchen fire.

(Added: Reader photo, texted)

10:01 PM: The incident log shows five units still on scene, a third of the number originally dispatched, so you’ll want to avoid that block of California (between Alaska and Edmunds) for a while. No report of injuries (we’ll verify that with SFD).

10:26 PM: The remaining units have been dismissed and the call is closed.

      Thanks for the update! Just heard the firefighters tell dispatch the air checks out OK on the floor it happened on as well as the ones below and above.

        They probably just left bread in the oven like I did 7 years ago. I never did get my window screen back in.

    Very exceptional work by SFD. Well done! As we were leaving 41st and Hanford we heard the first sirens, then many from other directions. By the time we got to the Junction, the units were all in full attack with ladders extended to the roof. I don’t often get to see how quickly our firefighters respond. A good reminder, especially now with so many large multistory apartments!

Sorry, comment time is over.
