SFD responds to two-alarm fire in Fremont

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on September 30th, 2014



According to our news partners at The Seattle Times, over 100 firefighters and 30 firefighting rigs were on site fighting the fire at the Asko Group Building on Tuesday afternoon.

SFD confirmed that the fire was extinguished at 3:15 p.m. after twelve workers were evacuated safely from the building. Nearby businesses were also evacuated and streets were closed in all directions surrounding the building.

As of 4 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon the cause of the fire was still under investigation. According to The Seattle Times, investigators are yet to go inside the building because of concerns about hazardous materials and the building’s strucutural integrity

Fortunately, there were no reports of injuries during the fire which took over an hour for SFD crews to control. No initial estimate of damage is available at this time.

Many My Ballard readers emailed in photos and videos of the Fremont fire. Click here to check out the photos on our Facebook page.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
