Just after noon on Saturday, firefighters responded to a fire alarm at the Nordic Heritage Museum, where Yulefest is in full swing. Writes MyBallard reader Melissa:
I was there with some friends in the “Old Ballard” section of the museum when people started saying there was a small fire. Museum personnel asked us to move to the exits and we ended up leaving before learning any more!
Engine 18 and ladder 8 responded. We talked to the museum which said it was a “minor issue” with no damage. So for those who wondered about the event, the museum says Yulefest continues as scheduled this weekend.
