Kenmore Junior High arson fire confined to courtyard walkway

Monday, April 26, 2010

At 5:05 am this morning, the Northshore Fire Department responded to a fire at Kenmore Junior High, 20323 66th Ave NE, Kenmore. Firefighters extinguished a fire located in a covered walkway adjacent to the gymnasium.

The King County Fire Investigator has determined that the fire was caused by arson.

The fire investigator posted ARSON signs on the school campus that include the arson hotline phone number, 1-800-ARSON. Anyone who has information about the fire should call the arson hotline or Fire Marshal Jeff LaFlam at the Northshore Fire Department at 425-486-2784.

“The covered walkway, located in a courtyard, cannot be seen from the street so it’s fortunate that the fire was discovered by the school janitor in its early stage,” said Terri Jones, Northshore Fire Department Public Information Officer.

The Northshore Fire Department (King County Fire District No. 16) serves Lake Forest Park and Kenmore, with fire stations in each city. Lake Forest Park students attend schools in the Shoreline School District. Kenmore students attend schools in the Northshore School District.
