Firefighters extinguish small blaze at vacant restaurant across from Ballard High

A large contingent of firefighters quickly controlled a fire at the old El Camion restaurant across from Ballard High school on Sunday.

When they arrived, smoke was seen pouring from the roof of the vacant building, which is covered with graffiti.

The site sold late last year to a developer for $3.6 million.

“Vacant”

I’m sure this fire isn’t in any way connected with the derelict RV that we all see in the photograph provided. Total coincidence, I’m sure!

Tighten your mask and put on horse blinkers and it all goes away. Stop signs are merely suggestions today. Wahoo.

Various factually tenuous statements. Hyperbole. Covid skeptic. Repeats tired stop sign “suggestion” trope. Something something something.

All I see is a GIANT metaphor. This IS Durkanville.

Suspension of disbelief. Repetition of party dogma. Bending of false narratives toward contradiction. Racists. White supremacists. xyz-ists. Oppression. Not actors, victims. Equal in misery. Frogs in water.

Ha! The Truth hurts, apparently.

Speaking of… what’s the matter Truth? Did your Paintking ‘cancelling’ bid fail? So you had to invent this lame parrot account? Pathetic, and amusing.

With a moniker like Truth one is allowed very few factual errors. Perhaps Truth will return as President, a title with a far higher allowance for them.

So you pick a fight and then drag me into it as you’re getting pummeled?

I’m flattered but confused.

Nice try Paintclown. You’ve been self-pummeling the whole time. :D

Where’s the compassion for our houseless neighbors experiencing arson urges?

There seems to be a lot of compassion here for the rich negligent developers. I’m sure El Camion was required to vacate immediately too. These capitalist scumbags should be fined heavily each day for the eyesore and public safety hazard.

They should be fined for every gordita I could have eaten during the last 6 months!

Perhaps they couldn’t get their demo permit so they… well now they will get one.

Our fire and police are very good at what they do ! But unfortunately when our police arrest thugs the seattle government just turns these thugs loose within a day or two to commit more and more crimes in the seattle area !

Hey, hey, heyy guys, haven’t you figured it out yet? The City is pro-homeless and anti public safety.
Permitting takes almost a year and the new owner has to leave the building in the exact same condition before they do anything to it. That’s so squatters and my homeless buddies can take it over.
Remember, you can’t arrest the homeless, can’t sweep them, can’t remove them from the street, can’t enforce the law whether it be cooking heroin at Ballard Commons or squatting then setting El Camion on fire, can’t remove RVs, can’t ticket them, can’t do anything. It’s a separate set of rules for us.

Another pro-homeless policy! Enabling homelessness and drug addiction hand in hand!!

Come on down to the Ballard Commons for shopping! Bikes and\or parts, random engine parts, fresh cooked heroin (injection allowed onsite!), meth, spare tires – we’ll burn them for you! – you name it.
Need something? Just describe the item, provide an address and no questions asked.
