Updated: Firefighters responded to 8509 14th Ave. NW just before noon for “light smoke” in a vacant building. This is across the street from Bob Johnson pharmacy.
The address points to this vacant house (above), according to Google Maps. It’s right off 85th St., next to a condo complex.
This makes the third fire by our count in a vacant structure in the Ballard area in the last month. On Dec. 12th, firefighters battled a fire in an abandoned building a few blocks away on 15th Ave. at 80th St. And on Nov. 26th, a vacant home burned on 63rd St. near 15th Ave.
We’ll update as we learn more.
