A small fire was discovered this morning behind the Smoke Shop on Ballard Ave NW.
Kristin Tinsley from the Seattle Fire Department says they sent one engine to the scene when the call came in at 6:25am, and at 9:30am, investigators were still on the scene.
Lexi from the Old Ballard Liquor Co. and head chef of the soon-to-open Skål Beer Hall (a couple doors down from the Smoke Shop) alerted My Ballard about the fire, which may have been set intentionally. With several recent arson incidents in the area, and ongoing small fires they’ve found in the alleyway behind Skål, she said it’s pretty nerve wracking.
We’ll update when we learn more.
