Lake Forest Park structure fire

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

On August 15, 2011 at 7:39 pm, the Northshore Fire Department was dispatched to a structure fire in a detached garage in the 3000 block of NE 181 Street. Upon arrival, firefighters discovered heavy smoke and flames coming from a three car garage. The fire was quickly extinguished and was contained to the garage.

The homeowner, who was outside, heard popping sounds coming from the garage, saw the fire, and called 911. There were no civilian and firefighter injuries. Damage to the building and contents is estimated at $60,000.

The King County Fire Investigator determined the fire was caused by improper wiring.

The Northshore Fire Department recommends using qualified electricians for all wiring and other electrical needs around your home and business. In addition, extension cords should be in good condition and only be for temporary uses.
