UPDATE: Seattle Fire ‘full response’ in Morgan Junction, quickly downsized

8:07 PM: A Seattle Fire ‘full response’ is headed to the 4300 block of SW Graham [vicinity map] for a report of “an exterior fire extending into a building.” Updates to come.

8:10 PM: The response has been downsized. SFD says the fire was small enough that the occupant put it out.

    I definitely smelled it. Glad it was small and uneventful.

    Thanks to the witnesses and neighbors that alerted me to the fire. I was able to quickly grab a hose and start working on the fire. If no one had been home, or I wasn’t alerted quickly, it could have easily spread to the house. Folks pitched in to point out where it was still burning and employees from the Bridge helped dump some water, too. Thank you. Someone from down the street said there was a similar fire in bamboo a block or so away within the last couple nights. Keep an eye out for your property!

      Confirmed – the other fire was at our house, also bamboo.

    Hummm Interesting as there was a brusg fire/bamboo fire Saturday night at 4400 block of SW Graham on the side of the yard.

      Yes – that’s my house.  I think we might have a firebug in the neighborhood.  Everyone keep your eyes open.

    Wow! Glad you and your property are safe! Any idea how it started?

    Brush fire tonight within a same block of this one – seems suspicious

  • Concerned citizen September 13, 2022 (11:04 pm)

    4th night in a row with a brush fire in this 2 block radius

    I live across the street from Beveridge Place and saw the brush fire that started behind there on Monday. Scary as hell and I have PTSD from nearly being caught in a leaf pile/brush fire when I was in my teens. So very glad that several people called the SFD. Until the rain returns in full force, I’m keeping my cellphone charged up and my eyes scanning outside for suspicious activity. Let’s keep each other safe, West Seattle! 

Sorry, comment time is over.
