SEATTLE — Crews fought a massive fire at a structure that contained older vehicles on Aurora Avenue North in Seattle.
A Seattle Fire crew reported the blaze on North 109th Street and Aurora Avenue North on Wednesday about 12:40 p.m. after they were driving through the neighborhood and noticed black smoke coming from the structure.
The fire was upgraded to a two-alarm to increase the response. Approximately 80% of the roof had burned through, causing structural instability, according to Seattle Fire
Firefighters took a defensive attack and doused the fire with three ladder pipes and hand lines, fire officials said. Two buildings near the structure sustained minimal smoke and fire damage.
At least one fire crew will remain on scene through Wednesday evening to ensure the fire doesn't reignite.
No one was inside the building when the fire started, and there were no reported injuries to firefighters, according to Seattle Fire.
Fire investigators have begun their investigation. A cause has not been released.
