Two Hospitalized After Commercial Basement Fire on Aurora Avenue North

Thursday, August 5, 2010

Shoreline Fire and the King County Fire Investigation Unit are looking into the cause of a fire in a small grocery basement that broke out last night around 11:00 p.m.

A King County Deputy was on patrol along Aurora Avenue North when he saw smoke and flames coming from the lower level of the Baro Grocery, near 170th and Aurora Avenue North.

Shoreline Firefighters had the blaze extinguished within minutes, with the assistance of crews from Kenmore’s Northshore Fire Department. Quick and efficient action by firefighters contained the damage to the basement area, saving most of the ground level grocery store above.

Fire crews transported two men to local hospitals for possible smoke inhalation. They were not owners or employees of the grocery. They may have been camping in or around the basement area.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, and a damage estimate will be available once the investigation is complete.
