As you may know from reading these pages, the majority of the calls for the Fire department are medical. Auto accidents, heart attacks, assisting police. They rescue people stuck in elevators, respond to reports of smoke, natural gas odors, CO2 alarms. They are constantly busy but their calls do not often involve actual fire.

So Friday was a very unusual day, with calls to three separate fires.

At 5:17am Friday morning, April 27, 2018, Fire was dispatched to a suspicious fully involved vehicle fire in the 14800 block of Wallingford Ave N. The vehicle fire was a joint investigation and determined to be arson.

At 5:44am, they were dispatched to a residential structure fire in the 100 block of NW 185th St. One resident was evaluated by the Medics as a precautionary measure.

The cause for the fire was related to a wood burning stove. No reported injuries, resident was cleared.

Then at 4:33pm on Friday afternoon, they were called to a residential basement fire in the 100 block of N 167th St. Their first engine was on scene at 4:33pm. At 4:38pm, the fire was extinguished. No injuries and investigators are determining the cause.
