Saturday afternoon, August 3, 2019 around 4pm, Shoreline Fire crews responded to a fire at the north end of Richmond Beach Saltwater Park below the steep slope at the corner of 22nd Ave NW and NW 190th St.

The tree and brush covered terrain did not allow easy access to fight the fire. A pumper truck shot water from above, until a crew could lay hoses from a hydrant at that corner to more directly get to the source of the blaze.

The hoses were run through a private property to gain the best advantage. Shortly after, another hose line was run from one block further north on 22 Ave NW to provide more water.

At the time of this report the cause of the fire was unknown.
