A small building at 17214 Aurora, housing an apartment and two businesses, caught on fire just after midnight Thursday morning.

The fire reportedly was accidental and started in the apartment. Two people safely evacuated.

Smitty's Old Fashioned Barber Shop appears to have suffered a lot of damage and Del-Bent Printing has smoke damage.

Fire crews from Shoreline and Northshore were stymied in their efforts because the closest hydrant had been damaged the previous week when it was hit by a car. It had not yet been replaced.

Many Shoreline residents were awakened by sirens from a dozen emergency vehicles converging on the scene.

The street was closed between 170th and 175th on Aurora for over two hours while crews were on scene, and power was shut off to the immediate area. The street reopened around 3:45am.
